Linktown - Sculpture
Title: Linktown - Sculpture
Description: The area south of Kirkcaldy town centre is known as Linktown and hosts the Links Market each year. In 2006, this steel mural was unveiled to mark some of Kirkcaldy's history. The text associated with the artwork reads:

"This sculpted steel mural celebrates various aspects of Kirkcaldy's rich history and heritage.

At the top of the artwork is a Ferris Wheel as seen at the town's Links Market which started in 1304.

The centre of the panel is an architectural feature representing the 18th Century building style of Robert Adam, one of Kirkcaldy's most famous sons.

The lower area depicts global time zones invented by another Lang Touner, Sir Sandford Fleming, who is also famous as inventor of the picture postage stamp and as the pioneer of Canadian Railways.

These three elements are linked by flowing strips which represent rolls of linoleum, which was the town's main industry for many years."

The mural was created by Andy Scott and unveiled on 9th June 2006.
