I have recently come across some different views of the old caravan park that was sited beneath the arches of the railway viaduct where Seatoun Place now stands. In the above image the gas holder and retort house of the former gas works can clearly be seen in the background. In fact, the presence of the gasometer and the rocky foreshore along the Keil Burn make this 1950s view not dissimilar to the 1938 view below of the ruined spinning mill which preceded the caravan park. The caravan park evolved over the years and a later image can be seen here.
The unusual photograph below also shows the caravan park in its earlier days. This view shows the detail of the stony banks of the Keil. Could that be the old mill stone lying abandoned next to the grassy verge, just below the fence-topped wall? It is known to have been buried at one point, only to be dug up once more at a later date. It now takes pride of place by the entrance to Seatoun Place. It seems to be the correct size and shape to me! Let me know what you think...
