Kingsway Speed Limit

Plaza CinemaDundee District Sub- Committee of the County of Angus Road Board decided, at their meeting in the Old City Chambers yesterday, to request the Town Council to reconsider their decision with regard to the derestriction of the Kingsway.In the part of the Kingsway within the bounds of Dundee the 30 M.P.H. speed limit is at present operative. Recently, the Ministry of Transport suggested to the Town Council that they delimit this area, but so far the Town Council have taken no steps in the matter.

Sir Herbert Ogilvie pointed out at yesterday's meeting that the object of the County Road Board in contributing to the making of the Kingsway was to provide a quick route for traffic going past Dundee. The effect of the speed limit was to partially nullify this intention.

On the motion of Bailie W.W. Tyndall, Monifieth, it was agreed to request the Town Council to reconsider the question of the derestriction of the Kingsway.

Jubilee Day Babies

To celebrate the Royal Jubilee, H. Samuel will present a handsome solid silver cup engraved with the name and date to babies born on Jubilee Day. Parents should notify the manager at H. Samuel's branch, I, Reform Street, Dundee, and claim the cup for their baby.

Also they will engrave free customers on their own Jubilee inscriptions on any article of silver of gold purchased during the Jubilee Week.

The entire business will be closed on Jubilee Day. In a letter to the Jewellers' and Silversmiths' Association H. Samuel states that no member of the large staff at headquarters, the factory and 99 branches will be penalised through loss of wages, and that any employees, such as watchmen, who have to remain on duty will receive extra pay.

The Royal Silver Jubilee

Where to Go and What to See - Dundee's Joy Day
Dundee on Monday will be so full of facilities to "go places and see things" that the average citizen will be hard put it to participate in every item of the big Jubilee programme.

It all depends on taste. School children will be particularly keen about the cinemas in the morning and the pageant in the afternoon. As it does not start until 2 o'clock, the youthful element in the community will be able to "do" both events comfortably.

Every body loves a procession and there is sure to be a big crowd on the streets as it passes along. The main crowd however, will be at Baxter Park, when all the units on parade will converge. Guns will thunder in salute and bands will play. The chief musical attraction will be the 2nd Battalion on the Black Watch from Barry Camp. Both the pipe and instrumental bands will be there. The event in Baxter Park will occupy most of the afternoon. After tea there will be the bands in the parks and dancing can be indulged in. In six of the parks there will be band concerts, and the seventh will be on the City Square. The bands will play for two hours, which will bring the celebrations to the hour of 9.30. Although there will be twelve bands engaged in the joyous task of making the welkin ring.

Then at ten o'clock we shall see some of the city's most notable buildings in a new guise. They will be floodlit, and the illuminated buildings will include the Caird Hall, City Chambers, the High School, the Morgan Academy and Broughty Castle.

The final act in the day's rejoicing will be the lighting of the flare on the Law, along with a special flare set up by the Boy Scouts. The Law will be an idea spot for sightseers to watch the final ceremony. From the summit they will see many beacons flaring on the surrounding hills of Angus, Perthshire and Fifeshire.

Thus will end a memorial day. It will be a day in which there has been something to suit all tastes. Work for the day will have been more of less dispensed with, and it will have been a joy day for all.
