OVERGATE VOX POP

Dundee fowk hae thir say....
I suppose, comparing it to the original Overgate, which was an ordinary street with shops and tenements that were a wee bit shabby, the 60's 2-tier Overgate must have looked spacious, clean and futuristic.
The footage below was filmed just as the "new" Overgate was near completion, and with most of the shops open for business, the locals get to express their opinion on the building.
Good luck with trying to spot someone you know!
Photo above by the Scotsman (1974).
