Looking up the Water of Leith from Canonmills Bridge

This view looks up the Water of Leith from the bridge at Canonmills.  All buildings in this view have been demolished and the trees have grown around the Water of Leith.  I hope to add a photo taken in 2011 to this page soon, for comparison.

-  The building in the top-left corner was a Rentokil office.

-  The building in the lower left corner is part of the public toilet block that stood beside the old Police Box at the foot of Brandon Terrace.

Police Box at Howard Place, beside the Water of Leith, on the corner of Brandon Terrace and Inverleith Row - Photographed October, 2010

I believe that the public toilets in the 1987 photo were in a stone building. This has now been replaced by a brick building, still public toilets.
