11th January 1986 was the date of the very last issue of the Journal.
It was, however, only the Dundee edition that disappeared from the news stands, all the other editions around various parts of Scotland remained.
The Journal was replaced the following week by the Dundee Extra.
A reminder that you can catch up with a selection of articles from the Journals past history in the "Dundee Bygone News" link down the left side of the Retro layout.
I put the photo up large sized, so if you want to read the cover the best way would be to click onto the image to get the enlarged version, then right click to "Save picture as..", download it onto your own pc, and zoom in.
