Mitchell and Murdoch, at No. 76, were tailors and clothiers. David B. Murdoch (who later ran the business alone, working as a colonial outfitter) lived at No. 109 Albert Street. Mrs Mary Souter, of the 'Maison Souter', was a milliner at No. 78.

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.
