Rustic Rooftop Terrace 1908

This is the former Beautiful gardens at Auchentibber. The scene is immediately behind the old Auchentibber Inn, and rustic wooden stairs lead up to the Rooftop Terrace overlooking the quoiting pitch. (Surely a great place to stand outside in Summer with a drink!)

The arch underneath the stair is made of wood, clad in small pieces of bark. The photo is by David Ritchie of High Blantyre, who took this picture around 1908. Its so clear as it was scanned from a glass plate negative. Thanks to Alex Bowie for sharing.
