Detailed guide books, such as Black’s Guide to Scotland, were available to help them make the most of their stay and stage-coach excursions and railway and paddle-steamer tours took them to attractions in the surrounding area, and further afield to the Isle of Bute, the Trossachs and the Highlands.George Washington Wilson, an Aberdeen based, professional photographer, took photographs of Scotland from the 1860s and produced ‘albumen’ prints, stereographs and ‘magic lantern’ projection slides as souvenirs for tourists.This 70 page booklet combines text from Black’s Guide, published in 1868 (including a street map, drawings, plans and two guided walks around the City) with twenty six remarkable photographs taken by Wilson.
