A tea party has been held to mark the 500th anniversary of the weaving industry in Dundee.
In its heyday the Jute industry employed more than 50,000 people.
On Tuesday hundreds of former workers gathered to celebrate the anniversary at the city’s Marryat Hall.
Around 200 people attended and entertainments included singing, and a quiz on the jute industry.
Organiser Vivien Scott said: "It is part of history and we want it not to be forgotten. Although it's not a product now we've gone onto plastics, it's good that it is still remembered in Dundee and in the next 500 years they'll be able to look back on this day and remember all these people that gave their lives to working in amongst the dust."
