There are no less than 22 people in the above image taken in Kirkton of Largo. Most of them are children, which is fitting as this photograph was taken right outside the old village school - which was just out of shot on the right. However, by the time of the photograph, the old school would have been closed and present one further up this road on the right open for some time (it was built in 1878). Perhaps the children were on their way to or from the school when they were asked to pose for the photographer. Zooming in on the detail, leather school bags are in evidence, either on backs on in hands. I think the postcard producer needed to go back to school as there is a blatant error on title - 'North Fens' has been written instead of 'North Feus'.
