Until the beginning of the nineteenth century Kilmarnock lived by what was produced locally. But after the Industrial Revolution many industries found a home in the town, producing goods from whiskey to carpets and from shoes to heavy machinery. Kilmarnock Memories records the growth of this Ayrshire community from its earliest origins as a sleepy village to the thriving town it has become. in over 200 pictures Frank Beattie tells the story of Kilmarnock, its people, buildings, industries, churches adn parks. Featured here are images of the town centre before its heart was ripped out by the developers in the 1970s. Also included are scenes showing Kilmarnock during wartime and at work and play.
