Union Street would not have been that old in 1796. I can't remember
exactly when it was feued out but the street is largely very late
18th and early 19th century. The buildings are/were nearly all shops
at street level with homes above.
The street was cut through existing buildings, so your references may
refer to what was demolished in the process. What is the context to
for a later picture looking up Union Street from Yeaman Shore.

> Hello Everyone :
> Might someone know if the buildings at the lower end of Union
Street, Dundee, around the year 1796 would have been mercantile or
residential? The buildings were owned by my family that year and one
is noted as having previously been "Old Magazine or Windmill" and the
other, at the rear of that site, formerly "Gilbert Adams House".
