SaltcoatsSaltcoats (Scottish Gaelic: Baile an t-Salainn) is a town on the west coast of North Ayrshire, Scotland. It is one of the 'Three Towns' along with Ardrossan and Stevenston.

History

Saltcoats' name is derived from the town's earliest industry when salt was harvested from the sea water, carried out in small cottages along the beach known as 'cots' in Scots. Other early industries in the town included coal mining, fishing and handloom weaving.

MiddlesbroughGeneralPostOfficeMiddlesbrough is a large town situated on the south bank of the River Tees in north east England, that sits within the ceremonial county of North Yorkshire. The local authority, a unitary authority, is Middlesbrough Borough Council.

From 1889, Middlesbrough was a county borough in Yorkshire, but in 1968 it became the centre of the County Borough of Teesside, which was then absorbed by the non-metropolitan county of Cleveland in 1974. In 1996, Cleveland was abolished, and Middlesbrough became a unitary authority, within the ceremonial county of North Yorkshire.

AberdeenAberdeen: Scottish Gaelic: Obar Dheathain, is Scotland's third most populous city, one of Scotland's 32 local government council areas and the United Kingdom's 37th most populous built-up area, with an official population estimate of 220,420.

Nicknames include the Granite City, the Grey City and the Silver City with the Golden Sands. During the mid-18th to mid-20th centuries, Aberdeen's buildings incorporated locally quarried grey granite, which can sparkle like silver due to their high mica contents. The city has a long, sandy coastline. Since the discovery of North Sea oil in the 1970s, other nicknames have been the Oil Capital of Europe or the Energy Capital of Europe. The area around Aberdeen has been settled since at least 8,000 years ago, when prehistoric villages lay around the mouths of the rivers Dee and Don.

GlasgowDukeStreetHospitalAlthough there are many complaints made nowadays about the level of service available from the National Health Service, it is difficult now to conceive of the conditions in previous centuries when access to medical aid was largely the province of the rich and powerful. The poor had to depend upon the charity of others, which tended to be sporadic and often meagre. Occasional support was on offer from the Glasgow's Town Council when finances allowed for this. Recourse was often made to the Kirk which tried to maintain its traditional role with regard to succouring the ailing and needy even after the Reformation left it with far less resources than before.
