Content and structure area

Scope and content

Aerial photographs of Dundee, mainly west end and centre, and surrounding district These photographs were presumably taken by the Air Ministry during the Second World War. They mostly cover Dundee's city centre and also the area known as the West End. Some have lines marking out the then campus of University College, Dundee, suggesting they were owned by the College. Stamps indicate that they were cleared for release by the Air Ministry in 1945. Given this information it is possible that they were acquired by University College for use during the planning of the British Association Meeting held in Dundee in 1947 or for the Cooper Report into University College in 1949
