Dock Street (east), Dundee - Ref: WC0141

This photograph is taken looking north from Dundee's harbour area, with the eastern section of Dock Street to the left and Trade's Lane leading northwards in the centre.

David S. Bryson, the oil and paint merchant, had stores at Nos. 43, 45 and 47 Trades Lane. The Dundee Directory for 1888-89 describes him as 'oil merchant and importer and refiner, Victoria oil paint and varnish stores'. He lived at No. 13 Park Avenue.

William S. Bryson is also listed as an oil merchant at No. 32 Raglan Street. To the left of the Dock Street reading and dining rooms at No. 64, owned by William Peggie, is Candle Lane, which leads north to join the Seagate.

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.
