Come learn/explore/share/join us:

As we explore past times and pull information from public records and the various heritage forums available to us, we will be sharing some of our most interesting stories here. We will categorise them for ease of use. Where there are copyrights, will make that clear. However, our intent is to make this a resource with longevity where stories can be added to and the general public can participate.

"Our past does not dictate our future, but it can inform our future"

If you would like to join us on this journey through time by sending in your pictures and stories we'd be grateful to receive them. With permission, we will scan and return any personal photos or cards you have that show something of Aberdeen's past. There is a lot of information scattered all over the world that we would like to see collated in one place for everyone enjoyment. HALLA have set up these various heritage projects to invest in our communities, both young and old, school pupils and residents, so that we see how we got to where we are today, and who got us there. Your stories and pictures will help furnish these projects and create a wealth of knowledge for the future.

The Aberdeen heritage project at Kaimhill Learning Centre has been a great experience for me to know about the city I live in, and particularly how it has transitioned to the city it is today.
