From lanes named after butchers and jute barons to thoroughfares inspired by the Bash Street Kids, Dundee’s heritage is splashed all over its street signs.
Many of the names are quirky and curious. Take Peep-o-Day Lane, for example. And then there’s Beef Can Close, Smellies Lane, Couttie’s Wynd and Thorter Row.
Of course, many street names hail from old Dundee professions – Candle Lane, Soapwork Lane, and Cowgate, where the town herdsman, in medieval times, would drive cattle into the city centre.
