THE first photograph in this week's trip down West Fife's Memory Lane is of one of the most popular features in Pittencrieff Park, the paddling pools, loved by generations of young people brought up in Dunfermline.

The second is a view down Bridge Street in Dunfermline towards the park, where the magnificent entrance gates were being constructed in 1928 as a memorial to the widow of Andrew Carnegie, Louise Whitfield.

The design included her initials and his together with three letter Ms: for Margaret Morrison, his mother; Margaret Carnegie, their daughter; and Margaret Miller, their grand-daughter.

The park itself had been bought and gifted to the people in Dunfermline by Andrew Carnegie in 1902.

More photographs like these can be seen on, in Dunfermline Carnegie Library and Galleries, where 'Old Dunfermline' DVD's are on sale in the shop, on, and also in the 'Then and Now' exhibition in the lower mall of the Kingsgate Shopping Centre.
