Corner View - Souvenirs
This week's Corner View is all about souvenirs from your home town, topic chosen by Epe......I didn't manage to take any photos of this one .....but there are a few out there on the web....
As a city, we've worked hard in recent years to increase visitor numbers, as a post-industrial city that hasn't always been easy.....but you can see Captain Scott's ship Discovery that he sailed to the Antarctic, you can visit a restored jute mill (think of the coverings for wagons crossing the States with pioneers and that's jute) or the Science Centre or the DCA Contemporary Arts Centre and our setting at the mouth of the River Tay is second to none....but souvenirs.....the traditional would have to be Dundee Cake. You can find a recipe for this traditional delicacy here!
Or you could buy a Beano - local publishing company DC Thomson have been producing the Beano since 1933, with characters such as Dennis the Menace and Minnie the Minx.....we don't always have statues to real people in Dundee, we have statues to comic book characters such as Minnie the Minx and Desperate Dan!! Click on the link to see Minnie and Dan in bronze right outside my work!
