The old Winter Gardens, Duthie Park
The original Winter Gardens was known as the Palm House. It was designed by the then city architect, Mr Rust, and erected from 1899. It was constructed from St Petersburg redwood and cost £1,550 in total. It officially opened on 1st August 1900.

The roof of the Palm House suffered extensive damage during a storm in May 1969 and after 70 years of public use the building had to be demolished and rebuilt. The new Winter Gardens was opened by Lord Provost Robert S. Lennox on 8th April 1970.
