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.
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.

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.
