Fife’s Art Deco Heritage 10 (i): Leven

This is in Commercial Road, Leven. It’s an estate agent’s now.

Poundland. I can remember when this was a Woolworths.

This one is on the promenade. It may have been a toilet block. I don’t know what it’s used for now. You can just see New Bayview, East Fife’s ground, in the background over the River Leven. You wouldn’t have been able to see it when Methil Power Station stood in between.

    Round building I think is some sort of sewage/water treatment pump. It is just beside the river/sea – the river was much more in evidence when I lived at the Shorehead late 50s to late 60s. Power station was built and buses used to turn round there in the 50s, before Shorehead car park became the bus station.
    Best art-deco building and interior must be the Troxy cinema in North Street, where Alan J W Bell (of Last of the Summer Wine director / producer fame) used to be a projectionist in the 50s.

    Martyn,
    Thanks for the info about the round building and the Troxy cinema.
    I’ve featured the Troxy in my post Fife’s Art Deco Heritage 9 and the former Co-op building in Fife’s Art Deco Heritage 10 (ii). There are also the houses in Largo Road [Fife’s Art Deco Heritage 6 (i) and (ii)].

    The round building is called The Leven Roundal and is a waste water treatment plant. I had to use the Freedom of Information Act to find this out!

    Bill,
    Thanks.
    Good to know it still has a useful function.
