Old Travel Blog Photograph DC Thomson Building Dundee Scotland


Old travel Blog photograph of vintage vehicles outside the DC Thomson building in Dundee, Scotland. DC Thomson is a British publishing and television production company best known for producing The Dundee Courier, The Evening Telegraph, The Sunday Post, Oor Wullie, The Broons, The Beano, The Dandy, and Commando comics. The company began as a branch of the Thomson family business when William Thomson became the sole proprietor of Charles Alexander & Company, publishers of Dundee Courier and Daily Argus. In 1884, David Coupar Thomson took over the publishing business, and established it as D.C. Thomson in 1905. The firm flourished, and took its place as the third J in the " Three Js ", the traditional summary of Dundee industry; ' jam, jute and journalism '. Thomson was notable for his conservatism, vigorously opposing the introduction of trade unions into his workforce, and for refusing to employ Catholics.
