Memories of living in Kirkton

I've lived in London 48 years but regulary visit home which I loved coming to Dundee until maybe 8 years ago. Too much social and drug and alcohol problems which seems to be spiraling out of control but nothing will take away my memories of living in Kirkton and two grand schools. SS Peter/Pauls an the Mikies the Earle Blue Stars great band in the Continental across the road the Commie club and the Empress Tues night brill , playing pinner at the paulies.

Favourite Dance Halls

I found reading  all the memories great but I've checked out on all websites  
and have yet never seen nor heard anyone mention my two most favourite dance  
venues The Continental which still exists I believe but not as a dance hall  
and my favourite the Commie Club which I recall being near each other in  
the Wellgate area, also The Tonk. I wonder if anyone has any photos as Dundee  
was a wonderful place then.
