These are the works at the southern end of Kirkcaldy promenade. It’s difficult to photograph as the prom has been blocked off. I had to balance the camera on top of a fence to get this. You can just about make out parts of the new sea wall below the crane.
A closer view of the southern end works, taken through a gap in the fence.
Sections of the new sea wall ready for positioning. Behind them at the right it looks like rubble – possibly from the old sea wall.
This view back towards the south shows some rocks have been placed in the sea here too. Also the crane as before and the new sections of sea-wall to the right on the grass.
Walking along the High Street recently the good lady asked if I thought this was deco. I said I thought not but she thought the keystone on the arched window is. Decide for yourselves.
Looking at the window outlines as I checked the posting – especially as delineated by the wire leading up to the street lamp – there is perhaps a hint of deco.
Whatever, it’s now the premises of Holland and Barrett.
I don’t often go along Park Place and so hadn’t really noticed the deco style of these two buildings. They’re not high deco, but the roof lines and the strong horizontals and verticals are suggestive.
Close up on the taller one; its windows are replacements, but still appears deco:-
The square chimney is redolent of deco:-
