Yard in the Docks
This photo is of a yard of
empty cable reels in one of the yards at Leith Docks.
The tower block flats, Grampian House and Cairngorm House
in Lindsay Road (both now demolished and replaced by new flats) can be
seen in the background.
Railway line can still be seen
in the foreground. At one time, the docks were covered with railway
lines, but by the time that I came to Edinburgh in the 1960s, all that I
ever saw running on them was a couple of diesel shunters.
