Here is a view of a busy lunchtime scene at Tollcross, with an
interesting mix of transport and pedestrians. There are lots of tramlines
leading through the cobbled streets.
Thank you to Douglas Beath (Tasmania, formerly
Edinburgh) for helping me to date this photograph from the fact

- The final conversion of Earl Grey Street from trams to buses
was May 1956.
- The bus in this photo would have been a No 9 (photographed
between Oct 54 and May 56) or a 27 (photographed between Aug 55 and May
