Dundee The Essential
Interesting
Situated on the north bank of the River Tay, Dundee has long been a flourishing town; its 19C prosperity was due to the three "j's"; jam, jute, and journalism. Until the First World War, the city was the principal British whaling port, and its current harbour remains busy. Scotland's fourth city is the seat of a university and a technology hub. A printer, James Chalmers, invented the adhesive postage stamp in Dundee in 1834.
