THIS week's Down Memory Lane photographs come from a book found in her home by Cowdenbeath woman Mary Burt.

The book is 'Old Cowdenbeath', published by Jim Hutcheson in the late 1990s and we are delighted to be able to reproduce these four photographs from it.

The photos include a shot of the pug engine which used to puff between the pits in the Cowdenbeath coalfield pulling wagons of Black Diamonds. This picture was taken at the Central Workshops just after the pug had been taken out of service.

There is also a photo of the current bus garage in Broad Street under construction when it was being built to house the trams that were to link the town with the rest of Fife.

Then there is a shot of Foulford Road from around 100 years ago with the roof of the Glen Tavern just visible and Kirkford Colliery with houses less than 200 yards from the pit.

If you have any old photographs you would like to see in our Down Memory Lane feature send them to or take them to the Times Office, 17 Bank Street, Lochgelly, on a Monday or Friday.
