Aides of Voe

Adies was a significant business in Shetland until 1991 when it closed. The company was very important in textile terms to the Shetland economy and history.

Adies supplied all manner of companies and people including Everest climbers and Royalty, so it is with delight that I can tell you we now have Laureen Johnson's book Inside the Postcard - Working Life at Adie's, Voe in the library. Not so much a reference books as an anecdotal personal look at the history of the company and the people who worked there, it is a fun read and fascinating to find out more. 

GlobalYell's reference library is open to the public to use. To make use of the library please contact us to book an appointment. We supply coffee and tea too!
