Photograph of Izatt Avenue housing estate, to the south of Dunfermline High School, which was built just after World War 2. The terraced houses with their own front and back gardens proved very popular. Dunfermline’s Maternity Hospital was built there as well just before the war and is now the site of a Business Centre.

    I was brought up here back in the 50’s till 70’s and this is just how I remember it. We spent many happy hours on the green playing mummies & daddies, cops and robbers, tig, cowboys and indians, you name it we played it. The only thing that really came up the road was the bus and the milkman, vegetable man and their horse and cart. i had the job of standing in the close waiting for them to pass and run out and scoop up the manure for the garden and if I get there before the guy across the road I got 3d…fond memories

    my 3 kids were born up the road at the Maternity hospital as well. I always remember going to Evelyns after delivering Blackies morning rolls and we would sit in the kitchen with the oven on to warm our feet while enjoying a roll with butter. We were only 13-14 at the time and still had to go to school after being up at 4am…………..and yes Betty was our neighbour too and her dad always sent her out to get the manure foir his garden. These were the days but really fun!

    Know it well my Nana Molly Woods lived literally in the centre of the photo next to Esther Wilson. I lived there in 1974 for a while when we returned to Dunfermline from Yorkshire. Played football and had a few scrapes on that green. Moved to Hutchison green early 1975.

    I remember the many new houses that were built in Dunfermline in the early 50s and how excited and optimistic people were at that time – war over, rationing ending, a new Queen, the coronation, full employment…
