Dunfermline & Its People is a temporary exhibition featuring 47 captivating images taken in the 1960's by the late influential photographer Joseph McKenzie who was dubbed 'the Father of Modern Scottish Photography'. This exhibition was originally shown in the nearby Pittencrieff House Museum in 1968. The photographic study was originally commissioned by The Carnegie Heritage Trust.
All of the images were taken during 1967 and 1968, which was an eventful time for the formal Royal Burgh.
In 1968, Dunfermline Athletic returned from Hampden Park with the Scottish Cup and an upcoming folk singer, Barbara Dickson, took the plunge to become a professional musician.
And the last passenger train departed Dunfermline Upper station - an indication that car ownership across Scotland was on the rise.
Joseph McKenzie, who died in 2015 aged 86, became a prolific photographer through the 60's, documenting Scotland as it underwent momentous change.
Mr McKenzie's work is held in the collections of the National Portrait Gallery of Scotland, the Victoria and Albert Museum and the McManus Art Gallery and Museum in Dundee.
