"I have been researching my family tree
ever since my father died in 2007. My father and Mother were brought
up in Gorgie and I have enjoyed reading the
Gorgie Recollections as they have given me an insight into his
life around the 1940, 1950s and 1960s."
"Here is a photo of a street party taken
in Newton Street (I think) in 1953 to celebrate the Queen's
My mother and uncle are in the photo as
are lots of other children and adults."
