The bootmakers Paisley & Robertson was at No. 19. No. 17 was the ironmonger John Aitken, and Joseph Johnston & Sons, the fishmonger's. After Mrs John B. Third's grocery and George Spence's fruit shop came James Stewart and the Metropole.

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.
