Photograph of Linburn Road and Trondheim Parkway taken around 1964. The open farmland on the left is now built over with the many houses on the Eastern Expansion and Duloch housing estates. The bus about to make its regular journey from Abbeyview through the town and on to Beatty Place can be seen parked on the right.

    As a child we would walk about the forestry commission land, up the cut and the coup. Even had my first driving lesson up there. The blue water has been drained and filled in, natural spring,wonder if it seeps into the houses yet. freedom to roam the whole area . Back in the day when it was a cry of” come back when you’re hungry or getting dark” to all of us kids.happy days.

    I remember it like this as I lived in Trondheim Parkway as a wee girl. Every year there was an Agricultural Show in the field shown at the bottom. There used to be a pets parade. I used to take my hamster or my neighbours dog up the stairs. Mrs Donaldson’s I think. Good memories living here as a kid.

    That is where you lived. A maisonette and I worked in Dysart. Had to get the bus every day and make sure I was home before 9.30 pm to enable me to get a pint before the pub closed. As you said happy days. You were sometimes looked after by our neighbours upstairs when your Mum went to the dockyard club with her sister Anne. I would have to bring you downstairs while you were still alseep. You never cried once. It might have been because I used to put Gin in your

    I remember this so cleary Auntie June Arnott. We used to walk up the farm track on the other side of the road. When we stayed over we used to walk round the block on Trondheim when you stayed in the flats

    We moved into 99 and the flats were lovely and had rose gardens out the front,it was a bit like living in the country when the cows were in the field at the bottom of the road.when I was a Home Carer I had to go into one of the blocks and couldn’t believe the state they had gotten into we used to take pride in keeping the stairs and close looking clean.

    This photo is so bleak & dreary – typical of what Fife so often looked like in the winter. Yet it stirs such strong fond memories for me. This was my childhood playground, we trailed for miles around these fields and woods. We may have been poor, but growing up in Halbeath in the 60s wasn’t half bad. I consider myself lucky and would take my childhood over any today.

    Brought up in first flat (Mackie Place) next to the bus. I can see my balcony above the Healey’s. Played football on the drying greens, in the garages behind the first flat, in the field in the foreground (the Blue Tornado’s home pitch but you had to avoid the cow pats). The waste ground in the middle used to get flooded. People used to say there was an unexploded bomb near the barn!
