THIS week's Down Memory Lane pictures come from one of our exile readers, Tom Murray, who was born and brought up in Lochgelly, but moved to Kent in the 1970s where he still stays.

He has some really interesting pictures from the first half of the 20th century from Lochgelly and Benarty which he wants to share with Times readers.

These include a picture of Glencraig Colliery FC from 1948, including two young mascots; and a shot of Jim Mollison, who was a popular fruit and vegetables retailer in Lochgelly for many years. The picture was taken in 1936/37, Tom believes, and added that Jim's business became established in Bank Street, and after he retired was taken over by his son Robert.

The other shots look at the junction between Lumphinnans Road and Motion Street in the 1950s, and a 1945 shot of the area behind Main Street from the Opera House. Notice Churchmount Church.
