Here are enlargements of some of these streets and houses:

Niddrie Mains Road, lined with daffodils

This is the main road that runs past Craigmillar.

The daffodils still appear each Spring,
but the houses have all now been

Streets and Houses

It took me a while to work out all the street names and house numbers.

By the time that I took this photo, many of the house numbers had been removed from the house,

and the street names had all been taken down and sold for souvenirs at auction in 2006 as souvenirs.

Housing in Wauchope Crescent

This photo was taken about one year after the previous one.

Only one block of houses now remains in Wauchope Crescent.

That was demolished soon after the photo was taken, but the church is still standing.
