Mr Monkey in Berwick

"Interesting stuff, this jute"

Mr Monkey in the courtyard of the Verdant works Mr Monkey with some jute machinery

Mr Monkey had heard that Dundee used to be known as 'Juteopolis'*, so he scampered off to the Verdant Works museum to learn about the history of jute in Dundee. And very interesting it was, too, with lots of interesting machinery.

You can read about the museum at the Verdant Works website and about Dundee and the jute industry itself at the Verdant archive.

*obviously, this wasn't in the postal address
