There were two schools close
to the south-west corner of Leith Links.
The school marked 'Leith Academy & Technical College' on this
map became Leith Primary School.
Thank you to Norma Brodie, Auckland, New Zealand for
identifying this school in the postcard view above. Norma was a
pupil at the school from 1946.
The other school near the south-west corner of Leith Links, marked
'Board School' on this map became Leith Academy Secondary School.
In recent years, the
building has been used by Queen Margaret University College,
but it is now [in 2005] for sale.
It is expected to be developed as housing or as a hotel when the
college moves to its new site at Musselburgh in 2007.
