The Courier has reported the death of Gavin Calder - they went onto write - "Gavin was one of 4 brothers who spent their childhoods at Dale House in Haddington, near to the existing entrance of Tesco, and Gavin’s son, Robin, said it was on the fields in which the supermarket currently stands that his father and uncles discovered their love of rugby."

I've also added an old photo (no date though) of the entrance of the now Tesco, with 'Calder's Lawn' just to the North of the gate.

Gavin's picture sourced via Courier from Stewart's Melville RFC.
Tesco/Calder's Lawn photo is McManus family material.

Not had a Sunday quiz photo for a while...I had to double check this one with Google Streeview as the view today is totally changed from this one!

Car enthusiasts should be able to date this photo...

I'll let it run for a few days before confirming where this as taken.

No one has even got close yet! A clue - the slither of chimney stack showing just behind the top left of the roof is still there today??
