Visiting The Tay

During this week the Tay near the Tay Bridge has been covered by great flocks of eider ducks. The ducks may be on migration but if flocks are leaving the river, new River Tayflocks keep coming, and passengers in the trains crossing the bridge see thousands of ducks and vast numbers of seagulls, all seemingly engaged in picking up small fish.

Historic Pageant

Dundee folk who visited St.Andrews on Saturday to witness the Kate Kennedy procession are asking why Dundee does not run a historic pageant. With a history of stirring times and thrilling adventures, it would not be difficult to plan a splendid spectacular pageant of Dundee interest. The flower show might consider a pageant for a Saturday.

Dundee Artist's Exhibition..

A charming collection of paintings by Mr MacLauchlan Milne, the Dundee artist is at present on view at the Independent Gallery in Grafton Street, London.

There are over 30 studies in landscapes and flower pieces. Mr Milne's work reveals a wide palette and a strong power of suggesting atmosphere. One feels the air and the sun in joyous works like " A Tuscan Landscape" and "St Tropez" both glowing in the happiest of contrasting pigments.
