Scotland's Jute Museum@Verdant Works is a tale of two cities both of them Dundee. For thousands in the 19th century it was a city of long working hours, poor pay and ill-health. For the privileged few it was a city of opportunity and wealth. At the museum the rattle and roar of the original restored machinery, the juteopolis film show and computer displays transport you back over 100 years to an era when jute was king and Dundee was its realm.
