Looks like it's at the Junction Road houses opposite the end of Union Street.

Some young looking men there! Looking at the hairstyles of some younger players, I would suggest it's maybe a bit later than 1960.

Quite a few names in this Mens' Ba, about 1960 by the hairstyles,I can see along the back , Gary Gibson,a bit further along towards the centre is Theo Rorie and his son above him,further along and down a bit is Ian burns and Josie Robinson, below Josie is Davie Summers,behind Davie is Gordon Rorie,above Gordon is Ian Smith,behind Ian could be Jimmy Dick,above them Billy Jolly,behind Jimmy Dick in Richard Gibson.Lower down in the centre with the white Gansey could be Piper Davy Newlands,below Davy with the flat cap is Geordo Borwick,at the bottom centre is Ron Sabiston.

Looks like Gary Gibson is in the middle of it - that's his face partially shielded by the balding man near the window.

I think this looks like the end of Olaf Place, but it's a bit difficult to tell.
