This is John Hannavy's reflective look at how Scotland was depicted in photographs and postcards 100-170 years ago. In many ways, it redefines our view of Scotland's past as we are familiar with seeing Victorian and Edwardian people and views in sepia, but these are in colour, adding a warmth to the scenes.
