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.
