Through snowstorms, squalls and towering waves.  From Kemnay to Calabar, Torry to Gothenburg, the North Sea oil fields to Tsarist Odessa. From a night on the tiles in Union Street to a month at sea on an Atlantic schooner.

Meet the men and women who built this city:

The cutters and gutters and oil workers, the scientists, revellers and football fanatics.

Those who left Aberdeen to find their fortunes,

and those arriving here today, to chase theirs.
