......."but can't see the houses on Fairfield road that ran up to the Canal. On the East side they were stone-built  ones and on the other side of the Street they were those which were started about the 1940's as the commencement  of the Dalneigh build."

Keep in mind that the 35mm photo was taken from about two miles away so the foreshortening is quite pronounced.

Hopefully,you can see the backs of the stone-built houses on Fairfield Road. At the end of the Bumber's Lane you can see the first of the council houses on Fairfield Road.

2nd Row--thank you!! That is very interesting.

 But I can't remember the houses being at the bottom of the Bumber's  Lane on the opposite side of it from the Caley Park At that time I thought that Howden's nursery went from Fairfield road right down to at least opposite the entrance to the Caley park. So what year were these photos taken?

The photos were taken 27th May 1988.

As you said, the nursery went the full length of Bumber's Lane (Balnacraig Road)
This OS plan was surveyed in October 1962 before any development had taken place.
