Hi

St Olaf's children's home Whytescauseway Kirkcaldy. mum applied for a job there in 1951. It moved after this time. I believe the house is now an insurance company it was right next to the Baptist Church.

Hi Christine you probably don't remember me, I was in st olafs late 60s as a kid, you looked after me, was a great place.  Childrens homes there are loads, valley gardens childrens home was at 19 valley gardens, think it belongs to the council offices now ,  pitteuchar childrens home in tantallon avenue in glenrothes,  old folks home now, theres many around but they never look like childrens homes just ordinary houses.  if I remember anymore ill post them , ive been in a few, just cant remember half of them.
