Rosyth, Hardback Book


This unique collection of over 200 photographs presents a vivid pictorial account of the development of Rosyth in the twentieth century.

Through these pictures we discover all aspects of the town, from buildings and shops which no longer exist to the construction of the Dockyard and the work and leisure activities of Rosyth people.

The author, who has lived his entire life in the community, has drawn on his own collection of postcards and photographs in compiling this book, as well as those from Dunfermline Public Library and former resident Edith May, and amongst them feature images that record visits to the town from dignitaries such as Winston Churchill and King George VI.

This book brings together a fascinating selection of pictures which will inspire many memories in long-time residents of the area and give newer residents an insight into the rich history of their town.
