NO4900 : You've been nicked! by Bill Kasman
The Elie scarecrow festival had some unusual exhibits this year. This old car was made to look like a police car complete with a straw-stuffed constable! It was positioned just over the bridge from the 60-mph road into the village with its 30-mph speed limit and must have given a few drivers a fright.

NT4899 : Ponies on the beach by James Allan
A popular holiday activity for small holidaymakers from the 1930s until around the 1970s. Children enjoyed riding and leading the ponies and donkeys (owned by the Haig Family) on the beach at Elie and Earlsferry. Mr Haig senior was known as the "Donkey Man" but as time wore on the donkeys were replaced with ponies. The saddles worn by most of the ponies were designed for ladies riding side-saddle
