Dock Street, Dundee - Ref: WC0132

This photograph shows part of Dundee's East Dock Street, and although the Dundee Directory for 1898-99 does not list any businesses between No. 9 and No. 15, they match those listed in previous editions.

The Salt Store at No. 11 belonged to Henry Cowan. Cowan advertises Scotch salt for its primary use at the time, curing - that is preserving meat by storing it in barrels full of dry salt. Other placards mention rock salt for bathing.
