Mid Kirk Style, Dundee

Mid Kirk Style, Dundee - Ref: WC0384

This photograph shows the tenement blocks in Dundee's Mid Kirk Style, a street which ran east to west parallel with the Overgate from Tally Street out of the righthand side to Lindsay Street, which can be seen at the extreme left.

The area in front of the wall is part of the grounds of the City Churches, which stand on the city's Nethergate. The only identifiable business is H. Carruther's furniture room, which is listed as No. 70 Overgate, managed by Mrs George Carruthers.

Her home address is given as No. 7 Ward Road, the same as William Carruthers, the hairdresser whose salon was at No. 12 Tally Street, so they presumably were man and wife.

Alexander Wilson who took this photograph, was a supervisor in a Dundee jute mill for over 20 years. He bequeathed much of his collection and £50, to cover the costs involved, to the Free Library Committee of Dundee in 1923.
