The Shiprow
This view from about 1890, shows one of Aberdeen's historic streets - the Shiprow. For centuries this was the main street leading from the harbour into the centre of Aberdeen at the Castlegate, until the building of Marischal and Market Street.
At the left is William Arthur's City bar - this block was demolished around 1900, and most of the other buildings in the photo were also removed in the 1920's because the area became very rundown. Further demolition of the area at the left hand side took place in the 1960's to make way for a mult-storey carpark and supermarket.
The buildings on the right hand side were replaced by the ABC Cinema which was demolished for further redevelopment (1999).
The only building which remains would have been just round the corner. It is known as Provost Ross's House and now houses Aberdeen Maritime Museum. It appears that the granite cobbles are being laid down in the photo.
