The alley leading south to the west of Smith Brothers is Tindal's Wynd, predominantly a residential area, with William C. Scott, plumber, at No. 9 and Edward De Gernier, bootmaker, at No. 30.

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.
