TAMH: Places to Visit
Dundee: McManus Galleries
Tayside’s largest regional museum and art gallery though certainly not its most active or innovative in terms of publicity or technology.
Amongst its collection of maritime artefacts is a Portuguese astrolable, ca.1550, brought back to Dundee by the merchant Andrew Smeaton. This may be the earliest known example of an astrolabe.
The images are of stained glass windows from the incorporated trades of Dundee. These are the ones with maritime connections and commemorate the presidents of the guilds in 1865 and 1866.
