Fully-detailed spliff-smoking punk rock snowman at Canmore's Tower in Pittencrieff Park, Dunfermline, 23rd February, 2005. Unfortunately his green mohican isn't clearly visible in the photo.

Top-quality, no-expense-spared sign seen on a furniture shop in St. Margaret Street, Dunfermline, 23rd February, 2005. No doubt the 'n' had to be replaced as a matter of urgency in order to minimise the possibility of the staff being subjected to pie-rage by hungry Dunfermline residents!

A plaque on a pedestrian underpass beneath the appalling dual-carriageway which was built through the Public Park in Dunfermline during the 1980s. Low-ranking politicians appear to have a remarkably strange concept of "environmental improvement".


The dual-carriageway which was built in the 1980s, ripping its way through Dunfermline's Public Park and cutting the town off from its railway station. One of many road-based "environmental improvements" which have ruined the heart of this ancient city.
