The industry declined through the 20th century and there are no jute mills in operation today
19th century tenements still occupied in 1970
Many derelict and awaiting demolition in 2004
inner city factories and houses were demolished and replaced with modern housing
High rise in the 1960s but low rise in the late 20th century

Dundee’s ‘outer’ ring road was built in 1930. Find it on the map.
When it was built, it was lined with fields.
Since WW2, Dundee has continued to expand well to the north of the outer ring.
Why would these land uses locate on the outer ring road ?
‘Beano’ and ‘Dandy’ produced here!
peripheral housing estates
Built by the local authority in the late 20th century
often to re-house people from the inner city
Low density private housing on the edge of the city
Large houses with modern amenities, spacious gardens and off street parking/garages
Modern, single-storey factories
