March 1935

Death of Former Local Entertainer

Union StreetThe death occurred at the weekend of Mr John (Max) Anderson, who was formerly well-known in Dundee as a music hall entertainer.

Mr Anderson, who in recent years had fulfilled engagements at many variety theatres in the Clydebank district, made his debut as a professional stage artiste at the Old Palace Theatre, Nethergate, Dundee and later tool part in several shows at the Queen's Theatre, Dundee.

Mr Anderson was an excellent mimic, and could give most realistic impressions of farmyard noises. He gave several broadcast performances from Glasgow, and was always a popular stage artiste.

Deceased, who previously resided in Balgray Street, is survived by his widow, on son and one daughter.

The Bellman's Budget Page - Flood-Lighting

Dundee magistrates may decide to try some scheme of flood-lighting in the city as part of the King's Silver Jubilee celebrations on May 6. The scheme is it comes to fruition, would presumably be in operation for a few nights, perhaps a week. Meantime the matter is in the hands of the magistrates, but no doubt, the Electricity Committee of the Corporation will have a way in the matter. The City Churches might look particularly well in flood-lighting. There are difficulties in this respect however, as the steeple would present a problem. Other buildings which might be considered for flood-lighting are the Albert Institute, the High School, the Royal Arch, The War Memorial on the Law, in addition to the flare,, would present an effective sight with the flood-light.

Dundee Agreement with Poland

Benefits for Jute Industry

In connection with the trade agreement with Poland an arrangement for jute has been concluded on similar lines to those arranged with other bacon-producing countries. It is hoped the result will be advantageous to the Dundee jute industry.

Mr George R. Donald, secretary to Dundee Chamber of Commerce, who has been conducting the negotiations on the subject, received a telephone communication from London to that effect.

The agreements which have been carried out through with Denmark, Finland and other states provided for bacon imported into this country being wrapped in cloth manufactured in the United Kingdom from yarn spun in the United Kingdom.

Hawkhill Harriers "Double"

Dundee Hawkhill Harriers completed the double in the Scottish Women's A.A.A. two-and-a-half mile cross-country championship at Auchinairn. Aggregating 16 points, they scored an easy team victory, defeating Clydebank by 18 points. Greenock Wellpark finish third. The Dundonians also triumphed convincingly in the individual title, which was easily retained by the Hawks' leader, Miss Mildred Storrar.

Super Cinema Mooted for Broughty Ferry

Dundee seems to have caught the eye of promoters who deal in super-cinemas. It was only the other day that the announcement was made that one is to be erected in the Nethergate and now there is a prospect that Broughty Ferry many house one of these up-to-date theatres.

The Volunteer Hall in Church Street, Broughty Ferry, which is the property of the Dundee Territorial Force Association, has apparently served its day and generation and negotiations for its disposal, it is stated, have been almost complete. The probability is that the transaction will be finally settled within the course of next week.

Many conjectures are being made as to what is to happen at the old hall. It is freely stated that the site is to be utilised for the erection of a super-cinema.

Broughty is already served by two cinemas, but the addition of another would no doubt be of advantage, especially during the summer months when the Ferry is thronged with visitors. If the scheme comes to fruition, the super-cinema will undoubtedly contribute towards the brighter Broughty scheme, which is being gradually developed.

City Square Now Complete - Florist Showroom Opened

The opening of the new premises of Messrs W.P. Laird and Sinclair in the City Square, Dundee, yesterday gave a further embellishment to the central architectural feature of the city.

The new florist showroom, which looks out on the City Square and High Street, is beautifully designed and greatly enhances the appearance of the Square. The large windows are spaciously constructed so that a complete view can be obtained of the mass of flowers displayed on shining chromium-plated stands within.

A handsome staircase connects the flower showroom with the seed department, which fronts on Crichton Street. One passes into it via the general office, and there is no need for customers to leave the premises to go from the one department to the other.

The seed shop is fitted with modern counters, and hundreds of seed bins, which facilitate the procuring of the customers' wants. The old system of drawers is completely eliminated.

A spacious window looks out on Crichton Street, thus giving the premises two handsome entrances.
