What glorious weather we are having ...at last ...here in Fife ...may be I shouldn't have said any thing ...it will probably rain tomorrow.... and wasn't the Royal Wedding fantastic ...loved the dress ...and didn't they look happy.
I took advantage of the weather on Thursday and went to Cupar ....it only took 90 mins and 3 buses lol. I tend to go out on my own when I have a purpose ...or money to spend ...and as the latter did not apply I went to add colour to Family History and try to find a photo from the library archives, of my Nana's cousin who I new had been a Provost and I believe a Sheriff too.
I love wandering around a town, with a camera and looking above the shops ....this is what captivates me ...seeing history in the architecture.
My Great grand mother Isabella, would have looked down from the pink or white windows on the right, during her latter years
and her cousin stood here in 1922, with Earl Haig, to unveil this memorial ...known now as 'The Angel'
The pillars were added to commemorate those lost in the Second World War.
I did find some photos of James Stark and the lady at the Library emailed them to me this morning ....Here is the man himself.
WHEN I gather all the information and get propper photos printed I will do a LO ....maybe a DLO and put it on my other blog.
Take Care xx
BTW ...Historically the provost was the chief magistrate or convener of a Scottish burgh council, the equivalent of a mayor in other parts of the English-speaking world.
