Old Photograph York Place Perth Perthshire Scotland

Old photograph of cars on York Place in Perth, Perthshire, Scotland. The name Perth derives from a Pictish, Gaelic word for wood or copse. During much of the later medieval period it was known colloquially by its Scots speaking inhabitants as " St John's Toun " or " Saint Johnstoun " because the church at the centre of the parish was dedicated to St John the Baptist. Perth was referred to as " St Johns ton " up until the mid 1600s with the name " Perthia " being reserved for the wider area. At this time, " Perthia " became " Perth Shyre " and " St Johns ton " became known as Perth.
