The Secret History of Our Streets

The Fittie Squares, Aberdeen

At the mouth of Aberdeen Harbour lie the Fittie Squares, a model housing scheme built for fishermen and their families in 1809. Tethered to the sea and cut off from the city the squares developed their own culture. They were a traditional fishing community, untroubled for 150 years, until the day that oil was discovered just a few miles out to sea.
