Working Archive

Ever wondered who had to clean the casks in the early days of Tennent's? Which Scottish foundry produced the iconic red 'phone boxes? Or how about exploring the diary of one of The Royal Bank of Scotland’s early cashiers?

In 2013/14 the Working Archive awareness campaign supported the ongoing National Strategy for Business Archives in Scotland and explored the stories behind Scottish working life whilst promoting the vital role that archive and records management professionals play in creating and caring for our national heritage.
