Reader Jim Shimmins sent in this photograph showing Banchory approximately 100 years ago.
It was taken by a visiting dentist from Edinburgh.
Jim said: “I believe they show a town moving at a different pace, although the scene is still very recognisable.”
Jim sent in another photograph of Banchory that the dentist took, see next week’s paper for the second picture.
