1910’s Auchentibber Quoiting Green

1910s Auchentibber quoiting ground

This previously unseen photo is of course the former Auchentibber Quoiting Green. Taken just over a hundred years ago in the 1910’s, it’s in remarkable clarity. Indeed, I can zoom in on the children’s faces, the sign on the pol, the litter in the waste paper baskets and the Statue of Poseidon!

To put this in context, if it were modern times, you would see the back of the (later) Auchentibber War Memorial on the far right of the photo.

The flagpole is most prominent. Almost all this scene now tall woodland.
