Hillside, Edinburgh

Thank you to Elaine Walker from Brunswick Road, Edinburgh, for posting her comments in the EdinPhoto guestbook.

Elaine wrote:

46 Brunswick Road

"My grandparents, Sally and Bob White, lived in the ground flat at 46 Brunswick Road for 70 years, until 2006!  Sally worked in the bakers opposite. Her sister Nan (Hewat) also lived in No.46.

Their children, Bobby and James White, James, Catherine & Billy Hewat all grew up there.

Did anyone know the Whites or the Hewats?"

Shops

"I remember playing in the 'back green' which had an air raid shelter. I also remember Miele's the chip shop and Lang's the Butcher."

Thank you to Alan J Burck who wrote:

Family

"Hi to Elaine Walker (above).  I was born in August 1940 and lived at No.45 Brunswick Road until 1962.  My Dad was an engine driver and I was the envy of the other kids as I got to ride on the footplate in the marshalling yards behind Brunswick Road."

Friends

"I have many happy memories, especially with James White who lived at No. 46.  In fact, we went to his parents' house to watch the Coronation in 1953;  this on the smallest screen ever made!  James and Catherine Heat were also very close friends.

I'd love to hear from any other kids who were around at my time.  Best wishes to:

all who attended Leith Walk School and Broughton School.

those in the 155 Waverley Cubs. ( Kirk Memorial Church)."
