Tag: Lochaber Archive Centre
Whilst being interesting, fun, sometimes sad and shocking, police records give us
information that would have previously been kept from the public, and first-hand account of life during significant periods in history.
Upon its opening in 1874, the Strontian Primary School Logbook reveals that, with only a small number of exceptions, children in the first three classes could not understand one word of English.
Lochaber is a place of enduring historical importance, from the ’45 Rebellion, to commando training during the Second World War, and we receive enquiries from all over the globe.
The archive contains some 9,500 rare glass plate negatives and historic black and white photographs documenting the construction of the Lochaber smelter.
