Old Photograph Village Hall Luthermuir Scotland

Old photograph of people and vintage cars outside the village hall in Luthermuir located North East of Montrose, Scotland. In days gone by this Scottish village in Aberdeenshire was dependent on weaving and farming. In 1882, Frances Groome's Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland described Luthermuir like this: Luthermuir, a village, with a public school, in Marykirk parish, Kincardineshire, near the right bank of Luther Water, near Fettercairn and Laurencekirk, under which it has a post office. Founded towards the close of last century on a moor so barren as to be reckoned worthless, it figured, for a time, as little else than a resort of destitute and abandoned persons from many surrounding parishes, but forty years ago was mainly occupied by handloom weavers.
