Synopsis:

Reviving the second city of renaissance Scotland, this book shows, through previously undiscovered photographs and drawings, the life and the maritime quarter of this great port. As it illustrates Dundee's transformation into a major Georgian town at the center of the flax trade between St. Petersburg and the United States, this account examines the changes wrought by the production and sale of the jute, by the arrival of railways, and by the advent of tertiary education. Drawing particularly upon the rich visual history sources of the Charles Lawson’s drawing of old Dundee in the Central Library, the DC Thomson photographic collection, and the University of Dundee Archives, this is a in-depth look into this constantly regenerating city.

About the Author: Charles McKean is a professor of Scottish architectural history at the University of Dundee and is one of Scotland's foremost authorities on Scotland's built environment. He is author of Battle for the North: The Scottish Thirties, Edinburgh: Portrait of a City, and The Scottish Chateau, and is founding editor of the RIAS/Landmark Trust Illustrated Architectural Guides to Scotland. Patricia Whatley is the university archivist and head of Archive, Records Management, and Museum Services, and the director of the Center for Archive and Information Studies at the University of Dundee.
