Kirkcaldy seafront earlier this evening.  Just a quick iPhone snap that really didn't do the view justice.

Just going through a box of very old family photos and there's some really old ones I hadn't seen before:

My great-great-grandparents at 85 years old in 1941:

I'm sitting in the hotel room scanning through a big old box of them.  My gran is on her way out, weeks at best, and I simply don't trust the rest of the family to keep the photos safe, or even allow others access to them when she's gone.  There's some real old crackers in there!

My great-great grandparents' diamond wedding anniversary in 1934.  I'm sure some of the folk in it think they're supposed to be gurning.  Also, interesting to see the Godfather on the side of the pic...  This is the Scottish side of my family, all bar the guy in the bow tie every man of working age is a coal miner, my gran told me the story of how my great-great-gran made every man scrub himself red (with a bit of blood here and there) to get the in-grained coal dust out before the day.

My great-grandparents are on the right of the pic, great-gran front row right hand side (our right, not actual right), great-granddad behind him with my gran in his arms.

I'd forgotten about this picture!  1995, I was a few months out of the army and utterly unfit to play rugby as my body was still too injured to take any hits.  I needed to keep fit so I managed to con my way into the university football team.  My "enthusiasm" greatly made up for my lack of any actual footballing talent.

I'm bottom left of the pic, photo left.  This was the lowest I weighed in my adult life, I couldn't have been more than 11 and a bit stone as I'd lost a lot of muscle mass. bulk and overall fitness while recovering from multiple knee operations.

A true historical document. I'm engrossed by all of it, but the background is particularly intriguing.

It was most likely taken at the local Masonic Lodge as you were either a Mason or you were nothing in that part of Scotland in those days.  I'm going to re-scan at a higher resolution to see if I can make out the documents on the wall in the background.

I'm guessing the picture in the middle depicts an aspect of the craft.

Round our way it was "the buffs". The Royal Antedeluvian Order Of The Buffaloes". I think this might have been because it was popular amongst service personnel who came home and wanted to keep it going.

People from mining communities scrubbed up really well, when the occasion required.

Higher res version, all I can make out in the top right one is "Grand Royal" something of Scotland.  Lady Justice is a fairly common sight in many Scottish historical secretive places that concentrate on "right" and "justice".

Last one for today.  My great-granddad in 1951 having a drink to celebrate the birth of my dad.

Bloody hell, your dad's younger than me.

My gran was born 1931, my dad 1951, me 1971. I spoiled the chain by not spawning a child in 1991!

Don't feel bad CKN...my great grandfather was John Smith, my grandfather was John Smith, my father was John Smith and my oldest brother was John Smith when my only son was born I wanted to call him John Smith and my wife would have none of it.

WOE AM I!
