Craigie Past and Present

The Courier & Advertiser (Fife Edition) - - COMMENT - By Fraser El­der

1. The frontage of the Caird Hall in Dundee is iconic. How many pil­lars fea­ture in the colon­ade – 10, 12 or 14?

2. In which year was the Abbey Theatre in Ar­broath opened?

3. And in what year was the 100-seater Lit­tle Theatre in Dundee opened to the pub­lic?

4. 10 years af­ter the open­ing of the sec­ond Tay Rail Bridge, a fa­mous nine-span town rail viaduct was hanselled on the Dundee to Ed­in­burgh line in Fife. Do you know where?

5. Two Scot­tish Cup sec­ond round ties were played at Dens Park and Tan­nadice on the same day and at­tracted 42,000 fans and pro­duced 13 goals. Can you name the year and the teams in­volved?

Reader Harry Greig, from Coupar An­gus, took this pho­to­graph of a beau­ti­ful sun­set look­ing from Coupar An­gus to­wards Blair­gowrie.
