Bygone Leven Fife Scotland
Bygone Leven, Fife, Scotland. Several of Leven's lost landmarks are featured in this book, including the impressive Kirkland House, demolished c.1940, the original Bawbee Bridge, and the amazing Shell House on the promenade - a shell-encrusted extravaganza that was later joined by a similarly decorated bus. Elsewhere there are pictures of a giant boiler that had been manufactured at the Durie Foundry, old fishermen's houses in Henderson Street, and the ornate building that served first as a church, then the town hall, and finally as a cinema.
