On this, the day that the present Queen overtakes Queen Victoria as the longest reigning UK monarch, here is a photograph which marked the 150th anniversary of the accession to the throne of Queen Victoria. On 24 June 1987, the East Fife Mail ran a feature about how, a century and a half to the day after Queen Victoria came to the throne in 1837, an 'open house' took place at Cardy House in Lower Largo. The venue itself being Victorian - at that time inside as well as out - was an appropriate one. Members and friends of the Scottish Tartan Society came together with locals to mark the occasion at the then home of Ivy Jardine (on far right of the group). It was noted that a number of school groups had visited the house too, as they had been studying the Victorian era.
