Marine Hotel, Newhaven

Leith's electric trams began to operate in 1905.  At first the service to the west from Leith went as far as Newhaven Harbour. The journey further west, as far as Granton was continued by horse-drawn bus.

A Leith electric tram and a horse-drawn bus can both be seen in this photo. This part of Newhaven seemed well served for food and drink. The harbour is just out of the picture on the left. 

Today, Main Street, the road straight ahead on the right, has been closed to traffic at this end, beside the old Marine Hotel, and Pier Place, the road on the left takes the traffic  through Newhaven, taking a route between the old village and the old harbour.
