Old Photograph Ewing's Shop Dundee Scotland

Old photograph of Ewing's shop in Whitehall House in Dundee, Scotland. Whitehall Street was built under the 1858 improvement plan and opened in 1883. In order to build the street, two very old closes and many old buildings were demolished. One of these was a well established mansion, occupied in the 17th century by Sir Patrick Lyon, who was related to the first Earl of Strathmore, a professor at St Andrews University and a judge. He was also a keen Royalist and at the restoration of Charles 11 in 1660, he changed the name of his house to Whitehall. He also placed the sculptured arms of King Charles II above his doorway.
