Levenmouth Fife Scotland

Levenmouth, Fife, Scotland. The exhibition Levenmouth: Then and Now at Methil Heritage Centre takes a nostaligic look at Levenmouth in the past. The photographs on display show many familiar places and landmarks, some have changed beyond recognition whilst others appear almost the same. One particular photograph of the Caledonian Hotel in Leven was taken over a hundred years ago and the hotel is still going strong today, having recently undergone a refurbishment. The images and objects in the exhibition are quite thought provoking, considering how different our lifestyles are now compared to the "olden days." For instance, you may think that the home delivery service of today's large supermarkets is a new concept, but we have one photograph showing a Co-op delivery horse-drawn cart taken at a time when it was the norm for shops to take their produce out to their customers. There are also some old Co-op tokens which worked in a similar way to modern loyalty rewards points schemes. As well as places and landmarks, shopping and the High Street in general, other areas explored are home and family life, leisure time and transport.
