Friends of Balgay Summer Meeting

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of attending the very well-attended Summer Meeting of Friends of Balgay at Mills Observatory, at which City Archivist Iain Flett gave a very informative talk of 'The poor in Victorian Dundee.'   Iain is always a hugely interesting and entertaining and his address yesterday was excellent.

There was a social event thereafter, with a rather fabulous Friends of Balgay cake - see right!

With support from the Dundee Historic Environment Trust, the Friends of Balgay have published a new edition of "A visitor's guide to the Treasures of Balgay" - it is an excellent publication costing only £1 and copies can be obtained by e-mailing friendsofbalgay@yahoo.co.uk
