The Post-War Years
This pictorial history records the life and times
of the City and Royal Burgh as it emerged from the
years of austerity and rationing after World War Two.
Bert McEwan’s carefully researched and highly
illustrated work looks at the events, buildings and
personalities that shaped the development of the city
from generation to generation in the 20th century
and into the new millennium.
The people of Dunfermline have a right to be proud
of the historical background on which the city is
founded and which makes it a tourist attraction. Yet
it is through the endeavour of its workers, shopkeepers
and industrialists that Dunfermline has been able
to maintain its position in Scotland as a desirable
place to live, work and indulge in recreational activities.
This book looks at all aspects of modern life in
the city, including housing, health, industry, heritage
and sport. It will be essential reading and reference
for everyone who lives in the city and has experienced
half a century of transformation.
