Scope and Content Upper Dens Weaving Factory, Prince's Street, Dundee (Dundee City council area) This mill was built to house power looms weaving hand-spun linen yarn into sailcloth and other heavy linens. It was built for Baxter Brothers, and was the largest factory of its kind in Dundee in its day. This view shows the main factory from the south east, with the end of a later building to the right. The steam engine which drove the factory was in the middle of the building, its position marked by .arched windows. The works closed in 1978, and the Upper Dens factory has been converted into flats. The Lower Dens Flax Spinning Mill, added to the Upper Works in 1865-66. is currently (2001) in low-grade multiple industrial us. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
