From the Curator of Museum Services, University of Dundee :
Way Back When – A Walk along the Hawkhill
Saturday 29 April 2017, 2.30pm
Meet in the exhibition, Tower Foyer Gallery, University of Dundee
Many of the photographs in Walter Simms’ exhibition were taken in the Hawkhill, parts of which were then changing beyond all recognition.
In this special guided walk we will explore the changing face of this historic street, with the help of photographs, artworks, poetry and memories, to try to bring its rich and varied past back to life.
The event will include a chance to see some of Duncan of Jordanstone tutor Joseph McKenzie’s acclaimed photographs of the Hawkhill, courtesy of our colleagues at The McManus: Dundee’s Art Gallery and Museum.
Free admission but please book here.
