WEST WARD WORKS

D C Thomson printing works, 1959 and 1960s by T Lindsay Gray, envelope an 1871 weaving shed (NO 39550 30326), and a well below the floor. On

the site of the first fireproof mill in Dundee, dating from 1806 (Bell Mill, NO 3959 3031, NO33SE 283). Printing ceased in 2010. Courtyards opposite

of early 19th century raw flax warehouses (NO 39567 30281, NO33SE 545) are converted to student housing as Keiller Court (no connection to the

jam-makers). The gable of an early 19th century house typical of the area is impressed into the south wall, Blinshall Street.
