The First mobile library in Scotland was also the first British mobile library.[1]

The photograph was accompanied by the following text:

The first County Library Van in Great Britain - a 1920 Ford used by Perth and Kinross libraries. This image originally appeared on the cover of the SLA News in the November/December 1958 edition (Number 32).

The van cost 366 11s 5d and was in regular use for 10 years.

According to the accompanying article, no other mobile libraries appeared until a van took to the road in Kent at the end of 1924.
