A gang of seven, we made several friends, among them a crowd who claimed to be known as the "Dundee Bums".<br /><span class="read-more"><a href="/reminiscences/kick-start-questions-about-beautiful-dundee-and-delightful-broughty-ferry"><strong>&nbsp;Read more......</strong></a></span></p> Broughty Ferry Road Bands / Groups Dancing / Dance Halls Work / Working Life Brian Rogers Broughty Ferry City Centre Fri, 14 Aug 2015 11:05:18 +0000 lynne.davidson 1332 at Nostalgic Memories of Dundee and Broughty Ferry <p>To rekindle nostalgic memories of Dundee and Broughty Ferry, I worked here in 1966, a 24 year old East London Sassenach but staying in St Vincent Street, Broughty Ferry. Loved the city, the people, the atmosphere. Used the Sliding Tackle pub, (Dear old Bobby Cox, the pub manager), John(?) the Locarno (?) ballroom) the Chalet along the seafront, and a hotel on a Sunday with a fab band, on the banks of the Tay river on Broughty Ferry Road. Weekday dinners at the Timex factory canteen, suggested by friendly locals. Happy days. &nbsp;</p> 1960's Celebrations / Occasions People Work / Working Life Brian Rogers Broughty Ferry Mon, 01 Jun 2015 09:25:04 +0000 lynne.davidson 1321 at
