Black & White Photos From Pathhead, Kirkcaldy – Part 1

Here’s some photos I took a few weeks ago starting at Pathhead, then going along Nairn St and Victoria Rd, and on down to Kirkcaldy Harbour.

The first photo shows Pathhead main street, Commercial St, which satisfies my love of old chimneys. The second and third photos are of a small church, built in 1869, tucked away from the main road and adjacent to an old cemetery (see photos below).

At the end of the short lane (Pathhead Court) with the church, is a small cemetery, which appears to be locked most of the time. It backs onto the building which used to be the Head Office of Nairn Linoleum works (once, one of the major employers in Fife), but it is now luxury apartments.

In the background of the photo above, the last remnants of the Nairn Linoleum Works can be seen.

  1. I like the black and white shots, but would love to see them in color as well. I don’t mean you need to put them here in color, just that I always enjoy the contrast in mood and feel between B&W and color of the same shot. Hope your week’s off to a good start and nice to see you. Not sure whether you’ve not been posting or I’ve just not had time to visit much on the days you have.

    • I’ll do a post at the end just showing the colour versions of each photo Janet, I’m just going through a black & white phase at the moment 🙂
      And thank you, the week has started off quite well, and you’re right, I’ve not been on the blog for a while, but hopefully I’ll have the time to get back into it now. I’ve missed chatting to you and the other wonderful wordpress bloggers out in blogworld 🙂

  2. Great monochrome shots, especially the trees in the cemetery and your chimneys are cool too. So a manufacturer closes down, presumably jobs are lost and the building becomes luxury flats, everything is becoming luxury flats! I suppose Nairn’s loss was cheap Chinese imports gain.

    • Thanks Gilly 🙂 I agree with you about everything becoming ‘luxury’ flats, it would be wonderful to have seen the place given to all the workers who had lost their jobs!!! And I’m guessing you’re right about the Chinese imports, our various governments and people in general, often take a very short term view on most things. The UK now has virtually no manufacturing left, which can’t be a good thing for anyone, other than the Chinese of course! I must bite my tongue, otherwise I’ll start down the politics route Gilly, and that would keep me writing forever! Lol!

    • Thanks Millie 🙂 I can’t get enough of old chimneys for some strange reason, but there aren’t that many places around here that I’ve located to get photographs that look half decent. And the street itself looked far more atmospheric in the bw version, than in the original colour version 🙂
