Midland Railway Road Waggon at Dundee 1900

Post by Niall Ferguson »

The attached photo has just appeared on the Old Dundee In Pictures FB page. The OP says it dates from 1900 and shows the Victoria Arch down by the docks. It is definitely a Midland Railway lorry but I can't explain what it would be doing in Dundee if the 1900 date is correct - thoughts welcomed

The Midland had a business relationship with the NB, so did they perhaps have a goods office in Dundee? Might Wordie have had a contract with them as well as the Caley?

The Midland Railway office was at 57 Meadowside. The building no longer exists, the site being part of the Wellgate Centre (a strong entrant in the world's ugliest structure competition).

J & P Cameron are listed as the carters and agents for a number of railways including the NB, in connection with Midland Railway, North Eastern, Great Northern and the Lancashire and Yorkshire.
