Here is a photograph of the area around Bute Crescent/Clunie Road in Abbeyview around 1960. The northern part of Abbeyview had
the streets named after Scottish Islands and in the southern part after Scottish rivers and hills. The Co-operative baker with his horse and cart can be seen making deliveries in an era when children could be safely sent out on their own. The balconies of the flats had yet to be used as additional storage areas and are free from satellite dishes etc. Gardeners in the area made good use of anything the horses deposited in the streets!

    The flats in this photo look more like the old flats that were in Clunie Road . I can remember when then council were going round installing central heating and double glazing in them . Only for a few years later to pull them all down . What does that tell you about the council planning department ? .

    That could so easily be my dad. He drove a Coop bakery horse and cart in the area at times. The Coop did not fully motorise until the mid 1960s. The stables his horse used were behind the Coop building on Pilmuir Street – Grantsbank?
