Our last class was P6J. With Angus Alive and Paul Reid Photography, we took P6J to find out how Forfar has changed by taking modern versions of some historical photographs of their town.

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.
