What flax left behind
The flax trade and the huge linen industry it created in Dundee, and the jute manufacture which followed, are long gone but they left a significant architectural legacy.

Stockholm was an important trading port for the Tayside towns from at least the early 17th century onwards when there were significant imports of Swedish iron. Sweden was also a popular destination as a place to live for many local boys away from political persecution. They played important roles in the commerce of Stockholm and Gothenburg and left their mark also in the Swedish army and navy.
