On 17 April, 1962, Livingston was designated Scotland's fourth 'new town'.
Now celebrating its 50th birthday, this book presents the lively and colourful history of Livingston through snapshots of moments in its planning, construction and industry. But, more importantly perhaps, the book highlights the sense of heritage and belonging felt by the population. This anniversary has offered both young and old the opportunity to reflect and to celebrate life in Livingston, which, over the last fifty years, has become a vibrant town at the heart of Scotland.
