Sorry, I should have said the stables are probably situated at the end of this straight, it's the single storey building with a slate roof. They did have white doors but these are obscured by the second competitor.
The Stables were at the end of Second Ave Keith. The grandstand you can see is the first one which stood in the middle of the car park as most of us will remember. The second grandstand built around 1922 - the one that burnt down - was situated over the running and cyling tracks, inside of the white railings to the left. Both of these grandstands were in existance at the same time certainly up to WW2
Thank you for your comments Bert, I'm sure those with any memories of Springfield Park would be interested in viewing this film on the internet, here's the address which I forgot to include http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JTk37MI_u2g&feature=channel
