In light of the current works on the St Nicholas House site this exhibition explores in photographs and objects the appearance and disappearance of this important street in Aberdeen.

For centuries Guestrow was one of Aberdeen's main streets but was largely swept away in the slum clearances of the 1920s. This exhibition features a number of photographs of Guestrow in its final years as well as looking at the important process in the creation of a more modern city.
