The news that the historic Torcher Parade would be returning to the streets of Aberdeen this year was welcomed with joy.
The parade was a highlight in the Granite City’s calendar for more than a century but was axed last year due to a number of issues.
To mark it’s return, we’ve looked through our archives for pictures of Torcher Parades past. See if you can spot yourself or anyone you know!
