re: Dundee-History Salvation Army Hostel
- You can see a photo and information on the Salvation Army Hostel on
the Galleries section of the Doon the Toon site listed on the links
page. According to the information there - 'This was originally
the "Duncan Institute" which was the first organised Industrial
School in Dundee. It was occupied as the Girl's Industrial School
until 1896 when the new school was opened at Balgay, Blackness Road.
From that time it was unoccupied until 1900, when the building was
aquired by the local branch of the Salvation Army and changed into
the "Salvation Army Home and Metropole for Women" '
