Tour Scotland Video Street Called California Montrose Angus
Tour Scotland video of a drive down a street called California on ancestry visit to Montrose, Scotland. From its early inception as a port Montrose had traded in skins, hides and cured salmon but in the 17th century began to export wheat and barley in regular trading transactions with the Hanseatic League. The town imported flax and timber from the Baltic; salt, fruit and wine from France and Portugal. The wealth this brought to the town is demonstrated in the surviving houses built by landowning and merchant families as well as local street names of " America Street ", " California Street ", " Baltic Street " and " India Street " evidencing its trading heritage.
