Photograph looking down Chalmers Street in 1912 with Bridge Street to the left leading up the High Street and where the Seven Kings pub is now, and where the entrance to the Glen was on the right before the magnificent Louise Carnegie gates were built which form the grand entrance today.

    And the tram line for the Townhill to Rumblingwell service which lasted another 30 or so years after the trams. At times bus ran every 5 minutes on the Townhill end so I have to presume the trams did as well.

    Note the name on the right. Hays Cash stores. I wonder what that meant. Did it mean cash only, assuming people got credit or used cheques, or is it a polite way of saying Pon Broker. Interesting to see this area built up prior to the gates being built. That means that when Andrew Carnegie slipped into what was then a private estate and played football, he took a different route to the one we would now, unless he came in through one of the the other two entrances. Perhaps Pittencrief street was once the main entrance.
