Segall calendar plate 1936
i found this recent donation to the cupar museum quite exciting. it was accompanied by a letter giving provenance. not just photos and documents but advertizing calendars can assist with research.

Finally got LED lights throughout the museum. Took a photo but doesn't appear to be any different than before except for what we will save in power.

Cupar curling rink 1913
Found this contract for a caretaker for the curling rink from 1913. Interesting to see his responsibilities. It is one of many ledgers and papers that came from Lloyd Macknack estate this year

A look back at our past and present board members and sample changes since the beginning of the community at 100 block Stanley St.
Saturday, April 3
Cupar was established in 1905. Here are the first 7 by laws I found in the Cupar Herald dated 1909. Made me laugh. Somethings have changed and some things haven't. Hopefully not to be sent to the gaol (jail ) for now anyways.
Early sports : baseball 1909 -10
Almost all small rural communities not long after establishing themselves played several different sports. Here is an early baseball team, not all names are listed. Many were prominent business men in town.
Cupar’s brick school
Cupar's brick school was built in 1907. The original didn't have the side extensions most people remember. One of the photos shows the teacherage to the left of the school. Later the elementary school was there. Later it became the school board office.All these buildings are now gone but we do have a "new" K to 12 school near the old site. iv class="separator" style="clear: both;">
