Comment

Perhaps somebody will e-mail me with a few comments about the vehicles and ships in this picture.

1.

The Closest Ship  -  Pharos VIII, at Lighthouse Pier, used as a relief tender for North Car Lightship and Bell Rock.

2.

The Distant Ship  -  is loading coal at Middle Pier

3.

The Drilling Rig  -  was used by the National Coal Board between Portobello and Port Seton in the 1950s

4.

The Small Building - to the left of Middle Pier was the taxi office

5.

No tramlines - so probably late-1950s

6.

The locomotive  - is a J35 or J37.  These lasted until the end of steam in Scotland, in 1967.

7.

The Two Boys  -  are Paul Lorimer and John Harkness.  "I got this from a good source - Paul whom I grew up with"

Date of Bruce London Photos

I originally captioned these photos "early 1900s", but then got  a message telling me:

-  The trailer is lettered for the London and North Eastern Railway Co which did not exist until 1923

-  You can clearly see a double decker bus with a covered top deck.  Such buses were not permitted until 1925 or '26

-  The bus immediately behind the transformer is still on solid tyres, all of which had been eliminated by 1928.

Eastfield

Terminus for Routes 26 and 44

Routes 26 and 44  -  Terminus  -  possibly at Eastfield, Joppa

  Reproduced with acknowledgement to Adrian H Dodsley, Oakerthorpe, Derbyshire, who supplied this photo to me.

 

 

Question

Where and When?

Is it Eastfield in the 1960s?

1.

2.

Eastfield  -  Coillesdene House high flats in background

3.

Eastfield  -  Coillesdene House high flats in background, and Rockville House Hotel

4.

1971 or earlier - UHF TV aerials on the houses are pointing towards Black Hill transmitter near Shotts.
                                   The Craigkelly transmitter, near Burntisland, came into service, September 1971.

5.

Could be later - The Craigkelly transmitter initially gave poor reception near Firth of Forth due to tides.

6.

1971-72  - Certainly before Aug 1974 because buses are not yet one-man-operation

Routes 26 and 44  -  Terminus  -  possibly at Eastfield, Joppa

  Reproduced with acknowledgement to Adrian H Dodsley, Oakerthorpe, Derbyshire, who supplied this photo to me.

 

7.

Pre-1967  -  because 26 destination is Clermiston, not Clerwood.    But see 13. below.

8.

Late-1960s  -  because of the style of destination blind on the '44' with six intermediate points

9.

Investigate - when the turning circle was enlarged to accommodate Atlanteans

10.

Late-1960s - Turning circle was enlarged then and Black Hill transmitter opened 1969

11.

Early -1970  - Certainly before Aug 1974 because buses are not yet one-man-operation

Routes 26 and 44  -  Terminus  -  possibly at Eastfield, Joppa

  Reproduced with acknowledgement to Adrian H Dodsley, Oakerthorpe, Derbyshire, who supplied this photo to me.

 

12.

1964-74  -  Bus 668 was new in 1964; bus 441 was withdrawn in Auf 1974.

13.

early-1971 -  The Australian company Ardmona advertised for the first time on Edinburgh buses then.

-  No 441 was overhauled, repainted and transferred to Route 44 when Route 30 started in Nov 1970.

Destination on Route 26 is because old destination blind fitted while new ones were being cleaned.

"From reading the comments I know there was some initial doubt as to whether it was 'Blackie' or not but as soon as I saw the pic I knew it was.

Looking out of the window at no.13 (the stair entrance between Whites and Carrs in the pic) is my great grandmother, Catherine (Casey) McKinley."

Prospect Street, Arthur Street and 'The Scotchie'

1.

Arthur Street is the steep-sloping street.

Several people remember seeing carts and lorries that ran out of control down this street around the 1950s.

Coal Lorry Accident  -  Comments

1.

Ron Leckie, California, USA wrote:

"Some of the coal seemed to disappear that day.  Many of the kids had dirty hands"

"The brakes were set and wheels turned into the curb but the vehicle just slid on the wet cobblestones without its driver"

2.

Eric Gold, London, wrote:

"I don't recognise the bairns or the policeman."

 "It wasn't 'Big Ginger, the Polis' (ha ha ha).  He would just let us help ourselves."

3.

Jim Di Mambro, South Africa, wrote:

"My fondest memory of the free coal was of a local character, Mrs. Wynn, shovelling it into her message bag.

"Eric Gold's mention aboot Ginger (the polis) brought back memories.  We used to play fitba ('3 an yer in'). 

4.

John Ballantyne, Edinburgh wrote:

"Arthur Street was very steep.  There were many accidents there.  A coal lorry, a sweet lorry and a coal lorry all 'ran away' out of control down Arthur Street.

The best laugh was watching the men with their fruit-barrows.  There were several of these being pushed around the streets, but when they came to the hill down Arthur Street, the owners had to hold on tight to the barrow handles to prevent the barrow from running away down the street.

The local children knew this, so they used to run down the street beside the barrows, pinching the fruit, and there was nothing that the owner could do about it!"

5.

Jim Di Mambro, South Africa, wrote:  "My brother and I could be the two kids at the back corner of the lorry."

6.

Joe Coyle, Edinburgh wrote:  "My sister is the little girl on the left in this photo."

Another Accident

Where and When?

An Accident, possibly in Edinburgh  -  Where is it?

 

Post Office Van

Accident

Answers provided Oct 20005 to Feb 2006

1.

Is it Haymarket?

Is it Leith Docks?

2.

Is it Seafield?      The PO van has a London Registration No

3.

Is it Millerhill?

4.

The lamp standards suggest that this is a railway yard.

The steam crane, works number 3310, built by Cowans Sheldon of Carlisle in 1914 for a cost of 3290.
It was based at St Margaret's shed in Edinburgh until 1962, when it was transferred to Thornton.

So if the accident in the Edinburgh area, it must have been 1962 or earlier

5.

From the Hon Editor of the Post Office Vehicle Club:

It's probably one of the rail yards in the Dalkeith area, just before 16 October 1958.

The van was first registered on 22 April 1954.  It was replaced by UXH 285 on 16 Oct 1958

6.

I'm 99.9% certain it is Smeaton.

7.

Newspaper report found:

Accident:  Shortly before 8am on Oct 8, 1958

At a level crossing connecting a farm road with Smeaton Colliery, Dalkeith.

"A Post Office driver was trapped in the cabin of his van and dragged along upside down for 150 feet after collision with waggons near Dalkeith today."

"His right trouser leg was ripped and his left foot was jammed.  We freed it and he climbed out himself."

"His first concern was for the mail.  He actually ran about collecting the scattered mail and packages and refused to go to the first aid centre for treatment until the last package was found."

East Thomas Street

"That was our horsebox that we used to take our ponies to shows all over Scotland, and also to go to horse sales, as my Mother was a horse-dealer."

"She was a remarkable woman.  She drove that little PV van laden with ponies from Aberdeen to Wales to sell them to put food on the table for us."
