Is This 'The Tin Church'?

By Gerard Cosgrove

I stumbled across this photo, which I suspect might be 'The Tin Church' in Addiewell. It looks like the church shown in sketches on the site, but as it was taken way before my time, hopefully someone can confirm this.

I'm sure this is the tin church - actually built of corrugated iron.

If you compare it with the sketch on the sketch map on the 'Some Addiewell churches' page, you can see that it's the same design - same tower and the fence round about it.  You can see what must be the two-storey houses in Watt Street in the background.

It's a lovely photograph with the children playing in the foreground, and the old clothes poles and even some washing on the line.  Thanks for adding it to the site.
