Thank you to Jean Rae for telling me that the photo was taken on the corner of  Dumbiedykes Road and Dumbiedykes Lane.  The houses behind the group of children are 'The Brickies'.

Dumbiedykes Road can be seen in the foreground and Dumbiedykes Lane leads straight ahead in the photo below.

The Big Green, Dumbiedykes Road
