Ayrshire author and photographer Hugh Maxwell's book, originally published in 2019, describes the fascinating history of Saltcoats, Ayrshire, illustrated with photos of the town as it evolves.

Evocative modern day photos - all taken by the author - also adorn the book and I was pleased to see so many on display in the town this morning.

From it’s origins in the salt industry to a holiday destination beloved of Glaswegians, "Saltcoats Then and Now" captures the spirit of the town and its people over successive generations and is available at bookshops and online.
