December 6: The Bandstand, looking North, St Andrews, February 1978
The Bandstand, looking North, St Andrews, February 1978 (AGC-73-20). A 35mm slide from the Andrew G Cowie St Andrews Photographic Collection.
Andrew Cowie was the son of press photographer George Cowie, and worked for his father and also undertook a photographic survey of the town of St Andrews, documenting the seasons and building changes during the 1970s.
35mm film and slides were a very popular medium for photography in the 1950s to 1990s. Slides, producing a positive image, could be then placed in a projector and used for lectures and group viewings.
