Sat 6th July 1982 and Sprotlands Farm taken from the end of Lynn Lea Avenue looking towards the Golf Course. Today this is the back of the Amisfield Park housing, although the cottage on the left is still there today.

The road to the right takes you to the entrance into the Seggarsdean housing.

Fascinating photo from around the 1920s (one of 4 of a panorama) showing the old School Gardens between Meadowpark and Victoria Road.

Today this would be called the old Infant School playgrounds. You can also make out the house on the left, which still stands today.

There are 4 of these photos, panning round the Gardens, all showing school pupils working in them. Something to consider for the modern day curriculum?!
