In the early eighteenth century, Lochee consisted of a small community of weavers who had settled along the banks of a burn. By the late eighteenth century, such was the growth of industry in the area that, a few decades later, Lochee firm Cox Brothers' Camperdown Works had become the largest jute factory in the world, employing some 5,000 people. This booming industry saw the local population rise, bolstered by Irish immigrants, many of whose descendants still live in the locality today., Despite becoming part of Dundee in 1859, Lochee has always maintained its separate identity. Indeed, the post-war years saw Lochee expand as new housing schemes effectively gave the suburb suburbs of its own. This compilation of images follows Lochee through this rich and fascinating history and captures an area currently looking to the future with an ambitious regeneration scheme.
