High Street, Dundee

High Street, Dundee - Ref: WC0211

This photograph looks westwards along High Street, Dundee, showing the north side section from Melville House in the distance to Whytock the jewellers to the right.

Next door to Whytock's are Lennie and Thomson, opticians and Patterson's Boot Market.

Above, the familiar Shipping Agent's advertisements have gone, and in their stead are larger commercial posters.

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.
