PHOTOGRAPHING FALKIRK'S HISTORIC INDUSTRIES
Tom Astbury
Professional Photographer
Industrial History Enthusiast

Local Dunblane photographer Tom has spent most of his working life in the film and television industry but in the early 1980's worked with Falkirk Museums systematically photographing the rapidly disappearing traditional industries of the area.
In this talk Tom will present a variety of photographs of important local sites from historic salt works to well known iron works in Falkirk, and the lesser known such as fireclay mines and brickworks, images not often seen outside the archives where they were deposited.

Free to members. £1.50 for visitors.

Location Cathedral Halls
