However, from this gloom a new political spirit suddenly emerged - the whirlwind of Scottish nationalism. At a stroke, Scottish independence was on the political agenda, and there seemed to be little anyone could do to stop it.

These amazing black and white photos were taken by Adrian Gee that show what Scotland looked like in 1962 and 1963.
