The past and future of Scotland’s traditional shopfronts

Now our Talking Shops exhibition is in full swing, our Content Officer Jen delves into the colourful past of Scotland’s shopfronts and nods to their future.
The Engine Shed has been supported by a grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund. Thanks to National Lottery players, we have been able to create Scotland’s dedicated building conservation centre. It enables us to encourage understanding of traditional building materials and skills among the public and professionals and raise standards in conservation for traditional buildings.
