City Churches, Dundee - Ref: WC1885

St Mary's Tower is more popularly known as the Old Steeple. It was built in the late 15th century and has had a turbulent, interesting history. More recently it survived the 1841 fire which devasted the adjacent City Churches. They were subsequently rebuilt.

In 1870 famous architect, Sir George Gilbert Scott, was commissioned to devise a restoration and conservation plan for the Old Steeple. In the late 1990s the Old Steeple again underwent refurbishment and has recently been reopened to the public.

Decorations on Royal Hotel, Nethergate, Dundee - Ref: WC1782

The Royal Hotel stands on the corner of the Nethergate and Union Street. In this photograph it has been decorated. Unfortunately, as the photograph is undated the reason for this is unknown.

The horse and cab seen in the photograph were probably waiting for a fare at the cab rank in front of the City Churches. Note the interesting early car behind them. The Royal Hotel has recently been converted into housing. Jeweller, Walker's, is situated in the ground corner shop.
