Window to the Past: Woodneuk 1932

The 1858 ordinance survey map records it as a hamlet at the junction of Boydstone Road and Kennishead Road.

Taken by Allan Cameron, cousin of Robert Watson author of booklet The Native Returns, it is described as being of the house where Robert lived during his early years in the 1880/ 90s, presumably the one on the right.

Today, only the house on the left survives and it has retained the name.
