Old Photograph School Street Markinch Fife Scotland

Old photograph of cottages, houses and children on School Street in Markinch village in Fife, Scotland. During the industrial revolution in the middle of the 19th century, the village started to adapt to spinning and weaving production. The use of water wheels of the corn and meal mills encouraged new industries to begin along the River Leven on land between Auchmuty and Milton of Balgonie in the form of paper mills, bleach mills and ironworks.
