Murraygate, Dundee

Murraygate, Dundee - Ref: WC0397

The south side of Dundee's Murraygate is shown in this photograph running eastwards, with the foot of the Wellgate in the distance.

Robert S. Barrie, the 'mercantile stationer, printer, lithographer, bookbinder and publisher', had his printing works in the Murraygate, with the administrative offices and shop at No. 16 Panmure Street. Mr Barrie lived at Lornebank, Monifieth.

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.
