The Record of the Century Summary


The Record of the Century: Scotland's History through the pages of the Daily Record by Philomena Doogan

A popular and accessible history of Scotland in the 20th century, seen through the front pages of Scotland's most popular newspaper, the Daily Record

This is a lively and evocative acount of how we lived, worked and played in Scotland throughout this century.

The major news stories affecting Scotland from every year will be covered: some will be familiar, some will jog the memory, others will remind us of events that will never be forgotten. The book also includes a fascinating record of the minutae of everyday life, expressed in a timeiline running throughout the text that records cost-of living data, famous births and deaths and other notable events.

Packed with large-scale reproductions of actual front pages, together with many other illustrations drawn exclusively from the Record's extensive archive, every page will reflect the experiences that have shaped the Scottish nation over the past 100 years. Collectively, they make up the record of the century and represent a fitting souvenir of the era about to pass.
