Photopolis : Reform Street

The photograph below shows the junction of Reform Street, here seen running northwards to the High School, and Bank Street, which runs westwards, parallel to the Overgate, towards Barrack Street.
The pianoforte & music saloons, ‘sole agents in Scotland’ for Bechstein and Steinway, were Paterson, Sons & Co. Pricelists in Dundee Central Library’s Lamb Collection (Box 29(19)) list other stores in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Ayr and Dumfries.
Next door at numbers 42-46 were the clothiers and men’s mercers, J. D. Adams & Company. No. 48 were the bootmakers, Miller & Smith. Alexander Miller lived at Edenbank, Downfield, a village at that time on the north western edge of the city.

Weekend News

Following the worrying incident yesterday in McDonald’s in Reform Street in my ward in which an 11 year old girl was shot with a pellet gun, the Courier has asked me for a comment – please click on headline above to view.
I missed party conference in Aviemore this weekend (which is very unusual for me as I always like to attend Scottish Liberal Democrat Conference). Reason was that a large team of colleagues were campaigning across the City and I felt it only right that I should be helping too – especially as some of the work was in my own West End area. Anyway, a super weekend’s campaigning in both Dundee East and Dundee West and thanks to all who helped.
