History of the West End : 6

This shows the north side of Dundee's Perth Road, leading eastwards into town towards the right.

At the extreme right of the image is Mrs Robertson's Coach Hiring Establishment, at Nos. 43-45 Perth Road. The painters and decorators at No. 47 were Thomas Brown & Son. Mrs C. Foote, a draper, is listed at No. 49, and baker William Coupar at No. 51.

To the left and west of Miller's Wynd was the grocer and wine merchant James Aitken, an agent of Kawazwattee teas. He lived at No. 55 Perth Road. The business lasted well into the 20th century as a wine shop and delicatessen.
