"Lost Aberdeen: The Outskirts" is the companion volume to the
highly successful "Lost Aberdeen" which recorded the demise of many
fine buildings of the city centre. In "Lost Aberdeen: The
Outskirts", the lands which encircle the city, spreading seamlessly
round its heart like a great fan, are explored and the losses
chalked up and discussed. The journey begins at Gilcomston, the
city's first suburb, once a little village of cottages and weavers'
sheds, with a hidden industrial enclave and a remarkably elegant
west end. Alas, Gilcomston is so lost that it is hard to find
today, in spite of its proximity to the city centre. The road now
heads north to Berryden where the demise of the Northern
Co-operative Society's imposing complex of meal and barley mills
and dairies is regretted. The journey continues, with Morgan
guiding the reader from faded landmarks to vanished villages
through a poignant and evocative trail of the past.
