Thank you to Paul Sutherland
"I was brought up on The Inch housing
estate and we enjoyed the most amazing view out of our living-room
This shot is from a transparency taken
by my Dad around 1965-66. It show Liberton Lawn Tennis club
in its summer glory, the courts freshly brushed waiting for
members to arrive in the late afternoon and play through till late
into the summer evening."
The Tennis Club
"I joined the club aged 14 in 1969 and
played through to its closure in 1973.
It was very sad that the club closed.
It dated back I think to the late 1800s.
The tennis court
is just visible at the bottom of this
The stars were Harry Roulston and Jim
McNeilage, both members of the men's first team which won the
Scottish Championship (I think) six years in a row."
