Edinburgh Recollections



North Bridge

Thank you to Eric Gold, East End, known to many as Eric McKenzie, London, who wrote:

"I remember, as a wee laddie, traveling on the trams from Princes Street to Newington as Vincent Cappola, son of the Cappola's Café people, in Arthur Street was a conductor on them.

The seats, I think, were wooden and I nearly slipped of the seat when we turned in to the North Bridge from Princess Street.  He gave me his hat and I ran around the tram like a conductor.

It was a great shame to see the trams finish in Edinburgh in the Coronation year of 1950s."
