Albert Square, Dundee - Ref: WC0005


To the left of this photograph is Dundee High School (the boys' building, which was originally the Public Seminaries).

To the right is the fountain which sat outside the Albert Institute. It was removed when a tree crashed down during a storm and broke the side. 'Rabbie Burns', whose statue stood nearby, wrote to the local paper the next day, expressing his shock.

The church in the centre is Panmure Street Chapel, a congregationalist church. Behind it stands the original Secession Church.

Castle Lane, Dundee - Ref: WC0069

Castle Lane was located at the foot of Crichton Street and south end of the Greenmarket. The Caird Hall and City Chambers cover this area now. This is Castle Lane viewed from the Greenmarket.

The arch on the left-hand side of the picture is the entrance to the Vault so called because it was the Kirkyard of St Clements church at one time.
