Treasure 5: The Aberdeen Bon-Accord and Northern Pictorial Holiday Numbers
The Aberdeen Bon-Accord and Northern Pictorial was published weekly from April 1926 until June 1959. It delighted readers with news and sports items illustrated with high quality photographs. This image is from the cover of one of the special Holiday Numbers which were produced annually in June to promote Aberdeen as "The Mecca of Holidaymakers".

It is the cover of the 1932 number, and we have also uploaded that from 1935. The covers feature pleasing use of bold colours and graphic design. In this image we see a boat racing past a packed Aberdeen beach and the city's distinctive skyline in the background.

Come and visit our 125 Treasure exhibition in the Central Library during July 2015 to take a closer look at the full bound volumes of these remarkable newspapers.
