Moving further up the Hawkhill from yesterdays location, you'd find The Corner bar on the junction of Peddie Street.
In the 70's, when the pub was run by Jim Butters, one of The Corner bar regulars emigrated to Canada. Many years later in the mid 90's he came back to visit Dundee, and one of the first things he did was to venture up to his favourite pub. When he got there he was shocked to see that it had changed to the Hawkhill Tavern, along with a change of owner. He stepped inside and looked around it, half amazed, half saddened, then he spotted the new owner, Ray Martin, so he went over to greet him and exclaimed - "I can't believe it's not Butters!".
The above picture was taken in the early 80's, but below you can view the same corner from ground level, the footage dating from the late 60's.
There is a guy walks passed carrying a guitar & amplifier and is seen going off along the cobbled Hawkhill. It would be good to think that it might be Jim Kelly away to a gig in the Invercarse!
Oh yeah, and watch out for the ghost car..!!
