Cottages, Wormit

Cottages, Wormit - Ref: WC3201

Cottages, Wormit. Whitewashed cottages and children dressed for work and play are featured in this picture. Wormit evolved as the newest of the south bank settlements at the junction of the Tayport branch line and the main line from Tay Bridge.

Wormit owes its existence to the railway which put it within easy commuter distance of Dundee.

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.
