These images show the scenes in Dundee city centre in December 1974 after Sir Rod Stewart paid a visit to open a new city music shop.
The rocker was in town to open Bruce’s Record Shop at 33 Reform Street, arriving to find a massive crowd of fans had amassed to catch a glimpse of him.
Sir Rod had found fame as a member of rock band Faces alongside soon-to-be Rolling Stones guitarist, Ronnie Wood.
The group had played the Caird Hall in Dundee only a few years before in December 1972 in what is believed to be one of the singer’s last performances in Dundee.

Bruce’s is also believed to be one of the few Dundee stores which didn’t ban Never Mind the Bollocks, Here’s the Sex Pistols upon its release.
Sir Rod’s first major solo hit was with classic Maggie May, which was released in 1971.
The singer was born in London in 1945 to a father from Leith and an English mother.
