‘Dunfermline’s People’ is an exhibition of black/white photographs taken by Joseph MacKenzie in the late 1950’s, early ‘60’s. This collection was commissioned by the Carnegie Dunfermline Trust to create a fascinating social history record of Dunfermline at that time and is now held by Fife Council Museums.
