On our second day in Forfar, Class P6T walked around the town, accompanied by Angus Alive, Paul Reid Photography and me, to take modern versions of historical photographs in our collections.

The Morton Photography Project has been funded by the Morton Charitable Trust since 2014. The Project supports National Trust for Scotland staff in using and looking after our photographic collections. In 2018–21, the Morton Photography Project will undertake research, publish articles and run engagement projects on these collections Trust-wide, as well as digitising and documenting photographic collections across the National Trust for Scotland. Future/Past has also been generously supported by the Aberbrothock Skea trust.
