1067 : Discovering Discovery


There is nothing like cohabitation as an aid to dating. Hang on, let me explain that : I am, of course, talking about the dating of forgotten negatives. On the same strip as yesterday's photograph of Dundee was this picture of "The Discovery"; the ship used by Scott to get his team to the Antarctic in 1912. It eventually returned to Dundee in 1986 and was berthed at Victoria Docks until 1993 when it moved to its new home at Discovery Point. My picture shows the ship in Victoria Docks, so my journey must have been between 20 and 25 years ago. I will carefully search the rest of the negatives for further clues.
