Nutshell whimsy at Dundee Museum of Transport

The Courier’s ‘Craigie’ column of 21 August featured a small item about the Nutshell miniature caravan now on display at Dundee Museum of Transport.

Manufacture of the Nutshell was a remarkable diversification project by local firm Wm R Stewart and Sons (Hacklemakers) Ltd. The Civic Trust’s Roderick Stewart, of that family, told the story of the wee caravan in our 2016 edition of City Scene. You can read the article here.

Meanwhile, the Civic Trust is delighted to witness the transport museum’s steady progress in restoration of the Category B listed Maryfield tram depot, with a view to opening on the new site in 2025. Most recently, the renovation work has made use of serviceable roof slates recovered from the former Regal cinema building in Broughty Ferry.
