Overlooking Granton Harbour

Here is a tram travelling up Granton Road, from Granton Square, turning the corner close to Wardie Steps and the junction with Boswall Road.  The tram is travelling towards Goldenacre, Canonmills and the Centre of Edinburgh.

This scene, with Granton Harbour in the background, was probably  taken in the early 1950s.  The scene here looks quite rural, but it is only about 3 miles away from the centre of Edinburgh.

The tram has three small flags attached to its pole.  These flags were added for the Edinburgh Festivals held for 3 weeks in August/ September and during Royal Visits.
