These sports bags first hit the scene in the late 60's, then came to be a common sight around town by the 70's. Most major clubs had them, as did most kids! They were originally meant for carrying your sport gear around in but they quickly became a fashion item. At school they replaced the canvas haversack and duffle bag as the school bag of choice. There were 2 variations on offer, a smaller sized curved rectangle shape, and this larger square one which had an outer pocket where the club crest is. Shops in Dundee that sold them were: McGill's, Caird Sport, Alex Smith's and David Low. Still looks pretty smart to me!
