Recollections page, over the past 18 months several people have
remembered the 'Eagle Gates' that once stood at the top of
West Granton Road at the end of a long drive leading to Muirhouse
Mansion on Marine Drive.
The gate posts
were ten feet high, each surmounted by a griffin. These were
demolished around 1960.
Until now, nobody
had been able to find a photo of these gates to add to the
EdinPhoto web site.. However John Dickson has now found one
which accompanied an article in The Scotsman published on
June 19, 1946
Thank you John.
