Old Ayr Old Ayr. This wide-ranging selection of pictures includes Ayr's old ice rink, Codona's funfair during a visit to the Esplanade, tramcars being dismantled at the Bellesleyhill Road depot and the Ayrshire Agricultural Show at the racecourse. In fact most aspects of the town's history are represented, with a pleasing mixture of vanished landmarks and features that are still recognisable today. The picture of John Colquhoun, rag and bone man, perched on his cart, is particularly evocative of an age long-gone. There's the Ayr United football team of 1921-22, while in an aerial view of the town the former Beresford Park football pitch (on which the Odeon was built) has sheep grazing on it.
