Dunbar in the 19th Century

Templelands is just noticeable where the High Street widens

Here is a late 19th Century view in the days before the car and electricity from a postcard of the period. The view looks south to the now deconsecrated church, which is about to be restored as a private home after a period of dereliction. Gas clearly had arrived, used for street lighting which testifies to the former affluence of the town.

The Lion and the Unicorn on the tall Victorian tenement building are only just visible and beyond that the tenements at Templelands are set back but noticeable where the High Street starts to widen.
