3 views of the Cowgate area captured before all the demolition began - so 1970ish.
Top one is from near St Andrew's Street junction looking over towards the Wellgate side, with Walsall Conduits sign on show.
Middle image is a familiar view of the Cowgate featuring Wishart Arch.
The wooden business sign top-left of the photo is for Holland House Electrical Co, and the white building next door to it is Mitchell Car Hire.
The bottom picture would have been snapped outside Millett's probably, that's the Gaumont canopy to the right of the image, with the continuation of the Cowgate beyond and King Street curving off next to it.
The Wellgate side of the Cowgate has the Dundee Savings Bank on the corner, and you can just catch a glimpse of the Cowgate Carpets shop sign beside it.
No hint of any boarding going up yet, all premises seem intact and still doing biz!
