Around 1960

Thank you to George Renton Jr., now living in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada, for sending his memories of the fishing industry at Newhaven Harbour, Edinburgh, around 1960.

Granton and Newhaven

"My Dad  drove a lorry, mainly around Newhaven and Granton, until we came to Canada in 1965.

I remember Newhaven fish market.  My dad worked for David Dow, located in one of the sheds just by the market.

We would have breakfast at the café across the road from the harbour. I can still remember egg on a roll and the banter between the girls working in the café flirting with the customers."
