The Green
A photograph of the Green at the turn of the 20th century. This was the site of a Friday market for many years. Farming and fishing folk would bring all kinds of produce into town to sell.

It is difficult to read their signs but the businesses on the left of the image, going towards the Market Building, are likely A. A. Smith, engineer's factor, Robert Cooper, tinsmith, and Peter Lyon, bird dealer. Signs for the Market's Cold Stores and for William Anderson, ironmongers, can also be seen. As can adverts for the Singer Sewing Machines.

This image comes from a framed print kindly donated to Aberdeen Local Studies by Donnamaria Carlin from Northern Ireland.
