Our Town Stories, a new web of Edinburgh Libraries

Our Town Stories is one of our newer websites tracing the history of Edinburgh through images, maps and stories from the libraries’ heritage collections. You can preview the site at http://www.ourtownstories.co.uk

Our Town Stories covers the period 1700 to the present day.

Users can

• View images of Edinburgh through a map interface
• Discover how familiar places have changed through then and now images
• Read Stories of Edinburgh’s people, places and city life
• Explore historical maps tracing Edinburgh’s development since 1700

For the best experience please use the latest version of Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer or Safari to view this website. At work Our Town Stories is best viewed on People’s Network PC’s or on Firefox (how well the site will display will depend on your version of Firefox)

We also made a commitment to deliver on information on Edinburgh’s Women of Achievement see link http://www.ourtownstories.co.uk/story/582
