Historic Environment Scotland

The past 30 years has seen a sea change in the way people shop. Our haemoginised and digital shopping worlds are here to stay but they have also created a desire for personal service and local, independent retailing.

We have recorded local aspects of this story for Historic Environment Scotland at the engine shed in Stirling through an engaging exhibition which talks on many levels: A history of Scotland’s Shopfronts.

Contrasting the technical details of construction, we created a film showing the human face of Shopfronts and how new uses are being found for high street units. We also captured the new generation of traditional crafts people and section titles were made hand painted by a local signwriter.
