Dundee has changed significantly since the 1960s, but going back in time to see what it was like is pretty cool. It was around this decade that the city saw some significant changes, the Tay Road Bridge opened, the Royal Arch was demolished and the Tram era came to an end.

With pictures from the University of Dundee Archive Services, here is how Dundee looked way back 60 years ago in the 1960s.
