Scope and Content Written on the back of the mounted print: ‘Shire: Fife. Place: Dysart. Building: 7, Fitzroy Street’. Photographer: ‘J.P.’ Date: ‘Oct 1964’ 7 Fitzroy Street, Dysart, Fife 7 Fitzroy Street was built in 1575, 22 years after Dysart became a royal burgh. It was extended in about 1700 around the time the burgh began to decline. This is the rear of the building. The curved gablet projecting from the roof is part of the later extension. Dysart, a pre-existing settlement on the outskirts of Kirkcaldy, became a burgh of barony in 1510 and a royal burgh in 1533. Originally a salt-making centre, it grew into a thriving port for exporting coal and fish. It declined from the 18th century. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
