Bygone News - Bill Dryden en Memories of Ninewells <p>I was brought up in Ninewells and am now 63 years old. It is amazing how much this place has changed in a fairly short time. Gone is Bill Davidson's wee shop, Joe Johnstone's smiddy, Lauries's nursery and the greenhouses behind it. Ninewell's garage is still there, albeit much changed and no longer a petrol station. There was also another petrol station close to where the railway bridge crossed over the Perth Road by Johnny Callaghan's scrapyard.<span class="read-more"><a href="/reminiscences/memories-ninewells"><strong>&nbsp;Read more......</strong></a></span></p> Perth Road Celebrations / Occasions Childhood Playing / Games Street Life Trams Bill Dryden Ninewells Wed, 30 Jan 2013 11:13:24 +0000 fiona.christison 1057 at Ninewells <div class="content clear-block"> <p>I was brought up in Ninewells, which in the early 50's was a village on the western outskirts of Dundee.

The tram terminus was just to the east of Invergowrie Drive and Lauries nursery. It also served as the bus terminus until that was moved further west to where the roundabout is now.<span class="read-more"><a href="/reminiscences/ninewells"><strong>&nbsp;Read more......</strong></a></span></p> </div> Perth Road 1950's Childhood Bill Dryden Ninewells Wed, 02 Mar 2011 16:08:25 +0000 lynne.davidson 583 at
