Scope and Content The north end of the Tay Road Bridge occupies the site of the Earl Grey and King William IV Docks and Tidal Harbour. The solitary bridge pier standing halfway along the sea wall is a memorial connected with the construction of the bridge. At the end of the straight path leading inland from the memorial is a stone beacon tower which formerly guarded a dock entrance. Under the left-hand offramp from the bridge is the site of a noted Dundee landmark, the Victoria Royal Arch. The offramp itself has since been removed. The park is Slessor Gardens, commemorating the Dundee missionary, Mary Slessor. The multi-storey office block at left is Tayside House, now demolished, former HQ of Tayside Regional Council. The prominent church with spire, centre left, is St Paul's Episcopal Cathedral. Title and Scope & Content contributed by North of Scotland Archaeological Society (2021).
