The postcard bearing this aerial image of Lundin Links was posted in 1955, so the photograph was probably taken shortly before that date. We can see the Ladies Golf Course towards the top of the picture and the wooded area known as Fir Park to the right of that. The Lundin Links Hotel stands out in front of Fir Park, with Station Road (now Links Road) bisecting the view in an arc from the hotel over to the left side. Crescent Road and Victoria Road slice through Station Road and are adjacent to the densest area of housing. The row of homes on Leven Road line the Ladies Golf Course at the top, while the larger plots of Station Road lie at the lower part of the photograph, just over the railway line from the Lundin Golf Course (the club house of which can be seen in the foreground). Two points of interest are picked out below (more to come in the next post).
The prominent buildings in the foreground here are Ravenswood and Elmwood boarding houses. The wooded area to the left are the grounds of Homelands - the actual villa of the same name is just visible towards the top of the trees (note the turreted roof). The gardener's cottage of Homelands is to the top right of the plot, adjacent to the bowling green further right. The tennis courts lie below the bowling green.
In the above zoom-in the old garage on Woodielea Road is visible in the centre, with a white frontage and long triple-pitched roof extending back towards the Fir Park trees. The garage was demolished and replaced with a development of five houses in 1980. Behind the garage are the Lundin Ladies Golf Club House and Greenkeeper's Cottage.
