Recent aerial photography has revealed the antiquity of this small area at the edge of the East Neuk in Fife. Experts believe they have identified the remains of a circular Neolithic henge monument dating to around 5000 B.C. lying adjacent to the neighbouring Bronze Age standing stones which are thought to be from around 2500 B.C.. Tourists escaping from industrial Scotland provided an economic boom to the region in the early 20th century but the area has now relaxed into picturesque tranquillity although its well deserved popularity with discerning summer visitors shows no sign of diminishing and there are still many holiday homes here. Many of the scenes in this volume, most of which were photographed in the early 20th century have changed little over the years and include pictures from Drummochy and Lower Largo (separated until a road bridge was constructed in 1914) tranquil scenes of Largo Harbour, the small villages of Temple and Sandy Hillocks and heavy horses ploughing behind Woods hospital in the 1930s.
