Dundee MemoriesDundee Memories Ian Malcolm was born into a Scotland which has now almost entirely vanished. The crowded, narrow streets of Dundee's Overgate which he describes have been replaced with shopping centres; the trams which rattled through the City Square have long been silenced and Dundee University campus now stands on the site which used to be Hawkhill's busy community centre. In Dundee Memories, the routine and atmosphere of Dundee life in the twenties, thirties and forties is expertly recreated. From his earliest memories as a toddler in a Blackness Road Tenement through childhood fun and games, to evacuation and then eventual employment in Dundee's thriving jute industry, the author recalls in vivid detail the habits and incidents of an almost forgotten time.

The Dundee Whalers

The Dundee Whalers 1750-1914. This is a study of what was Britain's leading whaling port. Today, Dundee captains and the city's whaling fleet have a permanent place in the geography of the world. Cape Adams, Cape Milne, Artic Bay and Eclipse Sound recall an era when the city's stoutly built ships, manned by heroic adventurers, discovered new routes, made new friends, but seldom sailed far from danger. In Dundee itself, streets such as Whale Lane and Baffin Street serve as reminders of an era in which Dundee dominated the whaling grounds. Moreover, the Dundee fleet has excelled as polar exploration ships, providing vessels for Captain Scott, Ernest Shackleton and Admiral Byrd, leaving a permanent reminder of the city's historic role at Dundee Island, Antarctica. An appendix lists all the ships and their captains.

The Diary of John Sturrock, Millwright,... Dundee, 1864-65. No other working-class diary for this period in Dundee's history has so far been found. In it, Sturrock records much of what was happening in Dundee during the boom which accompanied the American Civil War. Dock construction, military parades, visiting lecturers, circuses, shows and other forms of entertainment are all described. Christopher Whatley's introduction places John Sturrock within the social context of mid-Victorian Britain and Dundee, taking account of current thinking amongst historians about "respectability" and class and popular consciousness.
