At the left of the picture can be seen the multi-storey flats at Valley Gardens – the first to be built in Kirkcaldy.

Visible at top left is Dunearn Shopping Centre, Templehall Community Centre, as well as Templehall parish Church.

The picture was taken as a massive regeneration programme was set to get under way at the end of January 1976 and the area would be transformed forever.
