139 This wonderful photograph shows a war-time procession of decorated floats along Broughty Ferry esplanade. Since the annexation of the burgh by Dundee in 1913 the people ofBroughty Ferry had expected 'compensatiori' in the farm ofan outdoor swimming pool on the sea front. After over twenty years of discussions, however, a joint sub-committee of Dundee council voted in January 1937 to abandon the scheme.

140 And finally - we end with a typtcal Edwardian 'heraldic' postcard showing Dundee's coat of arms. The historie insignia has undergone several changes over the centuries, but the famous pot oflilies, a symbol of purity, which represent the ancient links to St. Mary, remain at its heart.
