Happy 100th birthday Logie!

Today marks the centenary of the official opening of the Logie scheme in the West End – happy 100th Logie!
 
We had planned to have an event tonight in the Lime Street sheltered lounge with local residents to mark this significant milestone and there was to be an exhibition at Blackness Library and in the Central Library along with talks by the Dundee City Archives.
 
Sadly, none of this is now possible at this time because of the COVID-19 health emergency but we do intend to run events like this at a later date as it is important to recognise the importance of Logie, as Scotland’s first council housing scheme, in the history of the provision of social housing.
 
Meantime, you can read one of the excellent articles by the Dundee City Archives’ blog here – all about the story of the building of Logie, with links to other articles.
