Bygone News - Murraygate en Watson and Philip <p>Spending a most enjoyable and comfortable evening in Queen's Hotel on Friday 15th November 2013 with former employees of Watson and Philip (Food Importers, Dundee) I only recognised one person there - ME - my reflection in the cloakroom mirror. Years have rolled. After all 1951-1953 were the years I was in the firm's employment. It was my second job after leaving Rockwell High School at the age of fourteen-and-a-half.<span class="read-more"><a href="/reminiscences/watson-and-philip"><strong>&nbsp;Read more......</strong></a></span></p> 1950's Work / Working Life Anna MacDonald Murraygate Wed, 11 Dec 2013 16:26:56 +0000 lynne.davidson 1149 at Market Life <p>"They had a market at Murraygate (in 1950's) and we used to get busters, chips and peas. She just stood and fried them. When you finished, she just dipped the plate in and used it for the next person (laugh), never hygiene, was it? (laugh) But everybody loved them!"<br />&nbsp;</p> Food and Drink Live Archive Jean Mori and Margaret Hepburn Murraygate Mon, 03 Dec 2012 10:09:02 +0000 lynne.davidson 1026 at Penny on a Tram Line <p><span class='wysiwyg_imageupload image imgupl_floating_right imgupl_styles_spacing_20_black_border\n\rBlack Border'><a href="" rel="lightbox[wysiwyg_imageupload_inline]" title=""><img src="" alt="" title="" class="imagecache wysiwyg_imageupload imgupl_styles_spacing_20_black_border\n\rBlack Border imagecache imagecache-medium" style="" width="230" height="165" /></a> <span class='image_meta'></span></span>I'd been at the Palais and got the last tram home from the Perth Road to Maryfield depot. The route went along the Murraygate and I remember people putting a penny on the tram line to keep as a momento of this last tram journey to Maryfield. At the Woolies stop I remember a certain gentleman got on from my place of work, a jute mill, I'd always liked him, and although we both went on to marry other people, just recently, after over 50 years we have met up for coffee and a blether.</p> 1950's Trams Patricia Perry Maryfield Murraygate Thu, 17 Mar 2011 14:26:12 +0000 lynne.davidson 720 at
