Merchant Navy Memorial
The light sandstone column in
this photo is a newly erected memorial (November 2010) to Merchant Navy
and other sailors who have lost their lives in wartime and peacetime.
Here, Jill Watson, creator of this monument is waxing some of the
bronze castings to help protect them.
The Water of Leith can be seen in the background of this photo.
The housing is on the west bank of the Water of Leith.
The end of the swing bridge over the Water of Leith, at the entrance to
Leith Docks, can just be seen behind the lighthouse-shaped building to thr
right of the monument.
