"I remember our family trips down to Cramond.

Postcard by Alex A Inglis  -  Cramond Ferry

We went across on the ferry to the Dalmeny Estate with my mum and dad, around the 1950s.   The ferryman used to scull the boat across the River Almond and, depending if the tide was ebbing or flooding, he  would head up or down river first.

Cramond was a favourite Sunday outing.  We used to go to my aunt's house in West Granton Road then we all would walk across the road and down Gypsy Brae - down the side of the gas works or through the gas works.  There is still  sign of  Gypsy Brae now."

"This photo was about 1949-50 with a near full gathering of the Callaghan Clan.  I see that I'm gripping hard onto my bucket in case my cousin, Norval, takes it!

I think this was the day that I fell in the water, fully clothed, and went home wearing my other cousins dress.    As usual, there's never a pic of my dad as he is usually behind camera.

I still have his camera, a Kodak Vest Pocket.  It's on our fireplace.  My Uncle Mike, the Store Milkman for Whitson area, is in the back row with the glasses."
