Old main street

An old picture of West Linton I found on t’internet, provenance unknown. I can’t imagine it’s still in copyright so I’ll reproduce it here for the purposes of comparison.

Quite a few obvious changes, like the tobacconist at the right hand side and also some sort of shop opposite. Where the post office is now appears to have been a tearoom. It would be lovely to be able to find out who the kids were, but no way of finding out.

I thought I’d match up the old view with contemporary in the two images below it.
