Aberdeen 1988: Night Workers



This film was made in 1988 by three Aberdeen College of Commerce students of Aberdeen in the evening and through the night.

It includes scenes of Grampian Transport in the days before First Bus, the fish market when there was still fishing out of Aberdeen, Norco milkmen loading their vehicles in the days when the co-op was a big employer in the city, newspapers arriving on British Rail at the Joint Station for distribution to newsagents in the days when people read newspapers (and they were worth reading) and bakers from Kennedy Bakery producing rowies etc in the days when there were still several family craft bakers servicing the people of Aberdeen.

Storage of the video over more than two decades has left its mark in quality dropout. The original soundtrack and narrative have been replaced for reasons of copyright.
