Photographs of Dundee in the 1970s

Scope and Content

The collection consists of six pieces of card with photographs of Dens Works, Dens Road, Claverhouse, East Port and other areas.

Administrative / Biographical History

It is possible that these photographs were taken by a student or a member of staff at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art. Most of the photographs relate to areas which had previously had some connection with the textile industry, suggesting they may have been taken as part of a project relating to the textile industry in Dundee.
