This spectacular book combines a wonderful collection of images of Dundee with informative captions that really bring them to life. All corners of the city are covered, with many landmarks seen here intact before they were swept away during the various redevelopment schemes of the twentieth century. The Tay ferries are featured, as of course is an outline of Dundee's more general maritime history, including whaling. As you would expect, jute, jam and journalism are covered, but for many ordinary Dundonians the real interest will be in the views of their part of the city showing familiar streets and shops prior to redevelopment. Bill Early's wonderful collection of postcards of the city forms the bulk of the material illustrated, while he and Eric Eunson have collaborated to produce a narrative that will be of interest to both Dundonians and visitors to the city.
