Lomond Publishers Aberdeen Beyond the Granite

Ian R Mitchell recognises his hometown is an often underloved place, but in Aberdeen beyond the Granite sets out an overwhelming case as to why this sentiment is thoroughly undeserved. An Aberdonian born and bred, Mitchell has lived in Glasgow for almost four decades. Returning to his roots, he delves into Aberdeens rich and often unseen history and culture from an exiles perspective, revealing a proudly unique city, home to the worlds oldest surviving company, the UKs oldest newspaper, and perhaps Britains oldest Italian restaurant!
