Aberdeen has been at the centre of maritime industry and events in the United Kingdom for centuries. This most northerly of cities has been in its day the home of the first and finest of British clipper ships, the biggest Scottish fishing port and capital of the European offshore oil and gas industry. Although disadvantaged by its relative remoteness from the rest of the UK, the city has always looked to the sea from its livelihood, trade and sustenance. From fishing boats to ferries, from clipper ships to liners and from oil rig support vessels to the city's history of shipbuilding, all aspects of Aberdeen's rich maritime heritage are shown here in this unique collection of images from Aberdeen Maritime Museum. They show principally the work and ingenuity of the people of Aberdeen who, through their maritime enterprise, developed and sailed some of the finest ships in the world.
