Scope and Content

High altitude and aerial photographs of Dundee, Dundee's West End, Wormit, Newport and Ninewells railway junction

Administrative / Biographical History

These photographs were presumably taken by the Air Ministry during the Second World War. They mostly cover Dundee's city centre and also the area known as the West End. Some have lines marking out the then campus of University College, Dundee, suggesting they were owned by the college. Stamps indicate that they were cleared for release by the Air Ministry in 1945. Given this information it is possible that they were acquired by University College for using during the planning of the British Association Meeting held in Dundee in 1947 or for the Cooper Report into University College in 1949
