Addiewell Bowling Club

Some great photos of Addiewell bowlers - do you recognise any of them?

By Sybil Cavanagh

Addiewell Bowling Club members, maybe in the 1930s or 1940s.  The first photo is probably of the club committee members, with a trophy.
The second photo probably shows the winning team, with the same trophy.
If you know any of the bowlers, add their names.
And where was the first photo taken?  Is it Addiewell Bing in the background?  Or maybe Deans Bing at Livingston Station?

Comments about this page

In the top photograph the gentleman sitting second from the  left in the front row was my grandfather Johnny McWhinnie. They lived just down the road at 1 Faraday Place. To the best of my recollection he was the caretaker for the bowling club and also for a billiards room down by the old co-op where my father worked. I went to Addiewell Primary School for about a year before we moved to Corby Northants.Every year I would come up for a visit. I now live in Salem Oregon in the US.I have so many fond memories of my times in Addiewell

Yes, Peter Collins, also my granda! I'm sure the picture was taken at Addiewell.
