      1. Tris, I’ve been looking at photo 4. Although it’s black & white, I think the tram livery is Dundee’s. I don’t know Dundee too well, I’ve only been there a few times, but I think there’s a railway overbridge in Lochee.


  1. By the way, Tris, thanks for alerting me to the poetry competition on Terry Entoure’s blog – I posted a wee ode –
    ” To Britannia, now re-awaken’d!
    Some lines penned in contemplation of the forthcoming exit of the United Kingdom from the European Union.”

      Talking about talking Scots… I see Neil Findlay made a bit of an ass of himself tweeting is pseudo Scots and eliciting replies that asked whether he was mocking people who spoke Scots, or maybe the working classes in general.

      I wonder if they ever think before the tweet.


      1. It’s Rothesay and the steamers are P.S. Duchess of Fife (1903 – scrapped 1953) and furthest away the T.S. Queen Mary (built 1933), the period is 1933-39 as the the Queen Mary has white funnels – post war she had CSP buff funnels.

              1. Mostly although Rothesay entered into a long period of decline in the 60s/70s.

                But a great place to grow up – freedom – the pier and harbour was my playground even before I’d learnt to swim!
