This is exactly how I remember the area when I lived in Dundee.
At the time the picture was taken (21st December 1983) the larger building next to it, the goods station, was being demolished, although obviously all the work was being done at the rear.
If you view the large version, you can see the rail station's Christmas tree.
The close-up image of the Dundee West Goods Station sign was taken on 22nd December 1983, and as you can see it was the depot of National Carriers.
Another relic from the past that's in the bottom shot is the guy wearing a Kestrel Marine jacket!
