A SIGN O' THE TIMES

Here's a quirky (or arty) wee bit of footage shot in the late 60's.
It's quite unusual because it has the word "Dundee" as it's main feature. So it crops up on things like road signs, shop fronts, work premises and so on.
See how many you are familiar with.
I only got 4...(hangs head in shame!!)

  4. 2 is correct.
    3 is the Dundee Engraving Co & Ironmongers shop in Lochee Road.
    4 is in the Logie Burying Grounds.
    6 is correct.
    Not being a motorist I'm not too hot on the road signs, but I guess now there must have been a few Ca Canny signs because I'm sure there was one coming into Dundee at Invergowrie end.
