The two photos above
were taken almost 50 years apart. The buildings, and even the
small traffic island with its 'globe' lamp post, are easily
This view looks along
a quiet Ferry Road towards Leith, about 1.5 miles to the east.
The road on the left is South Trinity Road, leading to the
district of Trinity.
Thank you to Bob
Martin for allowing me to reproduce this photo. It was taken when he was
living in an apartment at 3 Bowhill Terrace (part of Ferry Road)
at Goldenacre, Edinburgh. Bowhill Terrace is just off this
picture to the right
Bob stayed here from
July 1959 until June 1960, while serving with the US Air Force at
the RAF air base at Kirknewton, near Edinburgh in the 1950s-60s.
The photograph was taken around October 1959
I took this photo
through the upstairs back window of a No 23 bus as it approached
Goldenacre, along Ferry Road, from Trinity on the afternoon of
April 14, 2007.
