Along the bottom of these maps
and the aerial view is Comely Bank road, running to through Comely Bank
(bottom left) towards Stockbridge (bottom right) and on to
the centre of Edinburgh.
Beneath the legend on the
1844 map is the south west corner of Inverleith Park. This can be seen
on the aerial view above, with its allotments (upper left) and
boating lake (lower centre).
Sailing of model boats on the pond in
Inverleith Park has been a popular activity for many decades. The
President of Edinburgh Model Boat Club tells me that his members still
sail on the pond 'as long as the water is liquid' and that model yacht
clubs also still sail on the pond [Dec 2004]
