Spot­light on the wa­ter­front

The Courier & Advertiser (Angus and The Mearns Edition) - - FROM THE ARCHIVE -

Dundee’s wa­ter­front has seen many changes over the decades. We take a look to­day at some of the changes.

Clock­wise, from top left, we have first a view of the city’s wa­ter­front with a view of the Tay Road Bridge ap­proach from Tay­side House. The Stakis Earl Grey Ho­tel can be seen in the fore­ground.

Next, we see Dundee Lord Provost Tom Mitchell at the Earl Grey Ho­tel to un­veil the Stakis Com­pany’s new logo. He un­furled a flag fea­tur­ing the new sym­bol. Stakis Earl Grey Ho­tel was lo­cated at Dundee’s wa­ter­front.

The next pic­ture shows Dundee Leisure Cen­tre (Olympia) and Dis­cov­ery Quay be­fore the ship moved there and the Dis­cov­ery Vis­i­tor Cen­tre was built.

Lastly, we have a view of the wa­ter­front (site 6) from Dundee Leisure Cen­tre. The rail­way sta­tion and the walk­way lead­ing to it can be seen.

Do th­ese pho­to­graphs spark mem­o­ries? We’d love to hear them. Email craigie@ the­

A lot of green space as driv­ers come off the Tay Road Bridge. The for­mer Stakis Ho­tel pro­vided views over the river for guests.

All change in this area – and not just for trains. The walk­way was dis­man­tled sev­eral years ago and the sta­tion has had a revamp.

A toast to the new Stakis ho­tel which un­veiled a new logo.
