When the Lundin Golf Club House was opened in 1896, there was no need for a car park. I suppose that back then players would have walked from the nearby railway station or from somewhere within the village (a local residence or boarding house) or might have been dropped off by a horse-drawn vehicle. I'm not sure when a car park was first introduced but by the post-war era a substantial space for parking can be seen in the top image. The club house itself has also kept up with demand - being enlarged multiple times over the decades. Although the top photograph has been artificially coloured, the original car park seems to have been grass. Nowadays it has a tarmac surface. Could that be the photographer's tripod and vehicle on the right hand side of the old image (see detail below)?
