No 24, Craigleith Crescent

Family Home

Craighall Crescent lies on the high ground above Newhaven.  It is on the west side of Craighall Road, almost opposite Trinity Academy.

This was the home of the Wood Family.  The people in this photo are believed to be:

-  Grand Parents:  William Wood and his wife. 

-  Parents:  William Barrett Leslie Wood and his wife.

-  Children:  George and his younger brother Stuart.

Family Businesses

William Barrett Leslie Wood and his brother operated a fish delivery business, Wood Brothers, delivering fish from Newhaven Harbour to Edinburgh.  The business first used horse and cart, these being stabled across the road from No 24 Craighall Crescent.  It later used a motor van.

George Wood operated a garage in Craighall Road, opposite Trinity School.  He employed his brother, Stuart.  The garage opened in 1929 and remained in business until around 1964.  It has now been demolished and flats have been built on the site.
