Arthur Street

1961

This photo was taken on Kodachrome film by amateur photographer, Charles W Cushman (1896-1972) from the USA during his visit to Edinburgh in 1961.

The photo was taken on June 18, 1961, looking down Salisbury Street towards Salisbury Crags in Holyrood Park.

This photo was taken shortly before the homes in Salisbury Street were demolished. 

On seeing this photo and others taken  by Charles W Cushman in 1961, Eric Gold wrote:

"What a treat the photos are, especially the top of the brae in Arthur Street.  I remember the  wee shop well and the pub next door.  It was called Hares Bar. The white building down the brae was a chip shop."

Eric added

"If you look carefully at the Arthur Street photo, the old woman has got her fists up (ha ha ha ha)"
