It is hard to imagine each close off the High Street teeming with large families, but so it was in the 19th Century. The population remained concentrated in the centre until well into the 20th century. Nowadays only a few of the remaining closes are inhabited. The original aim of this beautifully illustrated book was to record what was left of the closes but the writer, Mary Byatt, soon noted that it was impossible to do that without recording the changes in Elgin High Street. The book is a marvellous record of the High Street and Closes through the ages and of what can still be seen on the street.
