Photopolis : Session Street

The original caption is misleading, as the photograph shows Dundee’s Scouringburn, whose layout was incorporated into the new Hawkhill section of the city’s inner ring road system in the 1970s, here seen leading westwards, Session Street to the right.
 
Mrs J. McManus, the general dealer, is first listed at No. 13 Scouringburn in the Dundee Directory for 1888-89. The 1893-94 edition has John Finnigan as the owner of the public house at No. 15, the Celtic Bar.
 
James P. Casey is described there as ‘dealer in furniture, left-off clothing, antiquarian and general bookseller, and licensed broker’. Their advertisement says Mr and Mrs Casey will pay good prices in cash for any part of anyone’s ‘superfluous wardrobe’.

Session Street proposed Traffic Order

I have received the following notice from the City Council about a proposed Traffic Order in the West End Ward area :
Dundee City Council propose to make an Order under Section 14(1) of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 for the purpose of facilitating works for a new commercial and housing development. The Order is expected to be in force for sixty five weeks from 21 May 2007. Its maximum duration in terms of the Act is eighteen months.
The effect of the Order is to prohibit temporarily all vehicular traffic in Session Street from the north side of the entrance to the Jahangir Indian restaurant for a distance of 60 metres or thereby in a northerly direction.
Access to the Jahangir Restaurant will be maintained from Hawkhill.
An alternative route will be available via Hawkhill, Horsewater Wynd and Guthrie Street for westbound traffic, and via Hawkhill, Brown Street and Guthrie Street for eastbound traffic.
Please forward any comments you may have regarding this proposal to Andy Scrimgeour, Network Management Team, Planning and Transportation Department, Tayside House, Crichton Street, Dundee, no later than five working days prior to the commencement date.
