As it's the time of year for Christmas shopping, we're turning the clock back to 1959 to see one example of what people might have been buying as gifts back then. While festive shortbread tins remain popular, sadly gone are the days of "Largo Bay" themed fingers. I wonder how these were packaged and what, if any, images were used in the branding. I'm also curious as to what the "Lundin Tower" was. If anyone out there remembers these products, please do comment. Back in the heyday of Largo Bay as a holiday destination, such products branded to the location were popular. I have previously written about the perfume "Largo Bay Bouquet" and I have also come across various vintage china ornaments bearing the names of Largo or Lundin Links which would have been sold locally to visitors. Of course, souvenirs of a different sort remain on sale today in village shops - tea towels, teddies, magnets and paintings for example - if you fancy doing some Christmas shopping in 2014!
This blog is about the history of the villages of Lundin Links, Lower Largo and Upper Largo in Fife, Scotland. Comments and contributions from readers are very welcome!
