Photograph taken 11 November 2006
Newhaven Road is one of the streets of Trinity, Newhaven and Leith that
I photographed in connection with members of the Devlin family, trawler
owners who operated from Granton Harbour. I intend to add more
details about the Devlin family and their business to this web site later.
The Devlin family's connection was with No 203 Newhaven Road, the
building in the foreground behind the bus stop
Newhaven Road leads to the right out of this picture, then down
the hill, formerly known as Whale Brae to the old village of
Newhaven beside the Firth of Forth.
Whale Brae was so named, I have been told, "Because some
fool tried to drag a whale up it".
The old Railway
This photograph was taken, standing on the bridge over the old
Caledonian Railway line from Princes Street station to Leith
North, via Craigleith, East Pilton, Granton Road and Newhaven.
The railway line has now been lifted and the route is now used
by walkers and cyclists.
