One of the submarines based in the Tay before World War I. In this photograph, beyond submarine 49, these extensive gardens, outbuildings and glasshouses all belonged to Seymour House, then the newly built private house of John Adam St Quentin Leng (son of Sir John of Kinbrae) and family, later the Seymour Hotel and now ...

During St Fort carriage-driving events this impressive coach and horses passed through Woodhaven, unintentionally re-creating a scene which must have been seen so often at this very spot 200 years ago.
On the left of the photograph is Chapel House, which stood on Boat Road from at least 1800. Here it can be seen with its close neighbour, J T Young's motor garage. Chapel House was demolished in the 1950s.
The development of the steam ferry service in the 1820s led to the first phase of development in the village. Here in the Fife Herald of 10 April 1823 we see land/houses being advertised for sale in Maryton, the area of East Newport bounded by Tay Street, King Street, Cupar Road and James Street.
Quite an unusual view towards East Newport, as it focuses on the most easterly stretch of the Braes. The houses on Tay Street between Robert Street and James Street can also be seen. Most interesting however, is the white cottage on the cliff at the left of the photograph. This is Kempstane, a small croft ...
Looking from the shore at West Newport, towards the pier and East Newport.
Happy family group at James Square in Gowrie Street/King Street. This is the top floor flat of the King Street section of the building, and the building and roof in the background is the building on King Street that housed the old police station. Today this view would show the Maryton block of flats.

This looks like a garden fete, possibly at Netherlea. Perhaps you know differently? Date unknown.
Apologies for the quality of this image. It's rather strange we know, but definitely worth telling the story. It's a painting that was spotted in a charity shop in a village near Brighton. The painting was simply entitled Gas Lane, Newport. The lady who spotted it took a photograph and sent it to the Old ...

Photograph shows international cricketer Ian Botham on the dual carriageway above Newport in 1985. He is on his charity walk from John o' Groats to Land's End. Botham's charity walks earned more than £12 million for children's charities.
I've always found this mural on the blocked up gable window of the house at the bottom of James Street rather intriguing. I've now learned that it was done around 1975 by four-year-old Boo Paterson (now a successful artist) and her older brother who lived in this house. They collected sea glass from the shore ...
