A different world

Aberdeen is Scottish city with the highest proportion of foreigners. Out of a population of 228,000, 55,000 were not born in the UK. Gudgeon suspects there are also a significant number of residents who were born in England. When I arrived in Aberdeen early ’72 it was 18 months before I encountered a fellow ‘English Bastard’ let alone anyone exotic. The Oil Industry put paid to that. Six fun-filled years, from Jimmy Bonthrone to Ally MacLeod...before the Alex Ferguson era.
