Farmhouse was also featured in the first of a series of illustrated
lectures on the Districts of Edinburgh by the local author, Malcolm Cant,
on 25 October 2004.
lecture on Greenbank, Malcolm showed some old photos of Greenbank Farm,
taken probably around 1910 and in the 1920s. The photos did appear
to show the same building as in the photograph above.
Farm with its thatched roof and field of small hay ricks seemed to be in
an ideal rural setting, but Malcolm explained:
- Conditions must have been
very cramped. The building in the picture was actually two houses.
- The houses had earth floors,
and no electricity or running water.
farm was demolished in the early 1930s.
