Leith Central Station

This 1987 view looks across Easter Road, the bridge having already been removed, towards Leith Central station at the foot of Leith Walk and its signal box.

Leith Central station was one of the largest stations built from scratch in Britain in the 20th century  but it had a working life of less than fifty years.

Soon after this photograph was taken the buildings were removed.  A Scotmid supermarket and Leith Waterworld swimming pool have now been built on  the site.
