Situated on the north bank of the Firth of Tay, Dundee is the fourth-largest city in Scotland. Due to a profitable combination of 'jam, jute and journalism', the city has gone from strength to strength, and was joined by the neighbouring settlement of Lochee in the 1800s. In addition to its rich industrial history, the city is well known for its scientific and cultural life, being the home of RPS Discovery, Robert Falcon Scott's Arctic exploration vehicle. Dundee's history is still very evident, with several castles, historic churches and a number of museums. A new Victoria & Albert Museum is due to open on the waterfront in 2015. The city is also an important centre for technology, and now accounts for 10 per cent of the UK's digital entertainment industry. Join author Susan Murdoch on a nostalgic journey around Lochee and Dundee, using old and new photographs to chart how the area has changed and developed over the years.

Dundee suffered more than most at the hands of developers in the 1960s and 1970s. Much of the city, the fourth largest in Scotland with a population of around 150,000, was changed in the name of development. Today, the city continues to change, as a multimillion-pound master plan to regenerate and reconnect the waterfront with the city centre is expected to be completed in thirty year period, including the development of a new Victoria and Albert Museum. This fascinating compilation of early Dundee postcards, photographs and lantern and glass slides takes the reader on a tour of one of Scotland's most established cities. Principally sourced from the author's own collection, Dundee Through Time unites a wealth of rare images to reveal that the Dundee of a century and more ago was as colourful and vibrant a city as it is in the present day.

I first got interested in kings and queens about ten years ago when I found myself reading a historical novel about Henry VIII. It was enthralling, but it left me wanting to know more about his ancestors. I then went on to read more. It was at this point I decided to produce a concise summary of my findings into a booklet. This booklet will be a genealogical record of all the kings and queens of England and Scotland, starting with the first king ever recorded, King Egbert of Wessex, 780 AD, and to follow them through Queen Elizabeth II, 1952.

He then turned shoemaker, met Robert Nicoll, the poet, married, and settled down. An uncommon contribution to Victorian working-class literature.
