Since 2001 the author of this book has tutored a popular course at the University of Edinburgh on the photography of Victorian Scotland. This book is based on the course and has been written because there is no single publication that covers the subject. It provides a multi-faceted insight into Victorian Scotland covering art and science, literature and tourism, religion and industrialisation, colonialism and social conditions, and more, with the direct and tangible contact that photography provides.
