Photographs dating back to Victorian times will be shown at an event highlighting Dalgety Bay’s hidden history.

Around 60 pictures of the Forth shoreline will be shared publicly for the first time during an evening to promote the planned heritage trail.

Dalgety Community Trust are currently in the process of creating a virtual trail, which could be accessed at a purpose-built heritage centre.

Among the collection are 50 photographs covering the First World War to the 1980s, which include shots of St David’s Harbour in the 1930s.

There are also images of Second World War planes waiting to be scrapped - old aircraft containing radium were identified as the source of the radiation on the town's beach - and the building of Braefoot Bay tanker terminal.

Ten images were from a private collection and include photos of a fire damaged Donibristle House and the SS Narova undergoing sea trials.  

The pictures will be presented by trust vice-chair, Brian Johnston, on Wednesday, February 21 at the library in the town.

He will also give an overview of the area’s history from the Bronze Age to the present day.

Brian commented: “There is so much lost and hidden heritage in the old Dalgety parish – a lot has happened here, although so much of it is now buried under tarmac.”

The event will begin at 7pm on February 21 and the £3 admission includes complimentary refreshments.
