In 1929, James McIntosh Patrick embarked on a year-long project to record the changing face of Dundee, Angus, Perthshire and Fife.
It was commissioned by The Courier and his drawings appeared every Saturday between September 28 1929 and August 23 1930.
We will be focusing on this body of work in Saturday’s magazine and then, from Monday to Friday, February 24-28, we will be publishing two pages of the drawings every day.
The artist was just 22 when he began the commission but he had already gained the renown of having his work hung in the Royal Academy in London.
The first of his drawings published in The Courier showed the Vaults, a collection of medieval buildings on what is now City Square, Dundee.
Don’t miss our series which will feature historic images of some of Courier Country’s best-loved buildings.
