Name of creator
The Dundee Garden City Association (c.1922-1965) was a co-operative of owner-occupiers living in the area of the Kingsway Garden City. This area included the Kingsway itself, Clive Road, Bruce Road and Foster Road. In 1948 it was said to represent over 300 persons with a core membership of 79. Committee meetings were held once a month, while general meetings were held quarterly. The concerns of the Association ranged from the sharing of tools, to organising and implementing schemes of mutual help and safety precautions during the war, to the removal of local pillar boxes. There was a proposal in July 1962 that the Society should be dissolved and a subsequent transfer of surplus assets of £2,955 to be used for Housing Repairs Fund.
