Teatime Tales from Dundee

Author(s): Maureen Reynolds


Maureen Reynolds was born and brought up in Dundee and her new collection of stories from the city is a nostalgic and affectionate look back at the city as it once was. These true tales are from the years before, during and after the Second World War and include a look at many aspects of now-forgotten life in Dundee. There are tales from the playground, of well-known local characters, of 'spookie nichts' and 'piggyback planes', ghost stories, tales of market days and tattie gatherers, all told with a genuine warmth that will appeal to Dundonians everywhere and anyone who enjoys a good old-fashioned tale.
