Lucky es­cape

The Courier & Advertiser (Fife Edition) - - COMMENT -

“The pic­ture on Satur­day was taken from waste ground on Springhill be­tween Wat­son Street and Grove Street,” emails Allan Cos­grove of Mei­gle. “The ten­e­ment to the left is sit­u­ated on Grove Street and the lane be­tween the build­ings is where Grove Street ex­ited onto Broughty Ferry Road.

“The yard where the car is parked was oc­cu­pied by the Souters who hired out cranes. One day dur­ing the 1960s, while ex­tend­ing the crane jib, it col­lapsed straight down the mid­dle of Grove Street and mirac­u­lously missed parked ve­hi­cles and, more im­por­tantly, peo­ple. It was a lucky es­cape for all.”
