New Sea Wall with puzzled swan

This photo was sent to my mother Margaret by the late Annie Davidson whose Mum was Kate Jack of 5 Factory Lane Avoch. On the back she had written 'The swan is in front of Bella Ritchie's house. How do you like the new sea wall?' I don't know the date but by the fact the sea wall is new others will no doubt.

Thanks to Willie Stewarts's latest photo we now know the wall was built in 1956. (picture #152) Thank you Willie.

I remember falling off the wall on to the shore at just this spot around 1958 or so, then running crying my eyes out up Margaret Street to No. 4. I blame Maureen, my big sister. She fell off first and I decided to hang on to the ribbon around her skirt. It wasn't the only hazard on the shore then - not all of the cottages had w.c.s and Granny Jessie across the street used to fling the contents of her pail every morning over the wall !
