JOPPA

EAST OF PORTOBELLO

A few extracts from

Recollections

Eastfield  terminus  -  Musselburgh Road

Lothian Buses  -  Terminus  -Tranent -  Route 26

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

Questions

I received a lot of replies when I added this photo to the Edinphoto web site and asked:

        1.  "Was this photo taken at the Eastfield?"

        2.  "When might this photo have been taken?"

Answers

1.  It was established almost immediately that the answer to Q1. was 'Yes'

2.  The date of the photo turned out to be early-1971, but there was lengthy correspondence for over 6 months to establish this.

Arguments supporting different dates for this photo included:

a)  the types of TV aerial and the direction they were facing.

b)  the date of conversion of the service to 'one man operation'.

c)  the type of crest on the buses.

d)  the dates that service was extended beyond Clermiston to Clerwood.

e)  The dates that 'old style' destination screens were used on buses.

f)  evidence of recent overhaul and repainting of the buses.

g)  which vehicles operated on Route 44, and when.

h)  the dates that these  buses were withdrawn from service.

i)  the date that the turning circle was enlarged.

j)  the date that Australian fruit company, Admona, advertised in Edinburgh.

STOCKBRIDGE

A few extracts from

Recollections

(i)

Streetwise

"In the season we would play conkers, climb trees, or play with fireworks (It was more fun if you held them in your hand!) so we gradually developed a streetwise attitude, knowing people to avoid and where to hide when chased."

The streets were our playground.  We exchanged scraps and played:

...

Diablo.

-  American and Japs

-  Cowboys and Indians

-  Robin Hood

-  Fencing with Sticks

-  Bows and Arrows

-  Aleavoy and other chasing games.

Aleavoy

Aleavoy was a chasing game played by two teams of about 5 or 6 kids (or more).  One team would hide and the other team would have to catch them.  The boundaries were about a half a mile radius from the den, usually Portgower Place, and so, again, you learned how to:

run fast

climb walls

get into stairs without having a latch key

then go through the back greens and generally hide.

These games all took place around the streets.  You got to know the neighbourhood and all the children who stayed there."

Robin McAra, Trinity, Edinburgh:  November 6, 2013

(ii)

Milk Deliveries

"Getting a ride on the open-backed Murchies' milk van was a big thrill.  Can you imagine that being allowed to do that now?

The Store (Co-Op) milk was delivered by horse & cart."

St Cuthbert's Milk Deliveries  -  January 1985

©  Peter Stubbs.   Photograph taken:  January 12, 1985

Bruce's, The Bakers

"Bruce's cakes were legendary - French fancies, cream buns, pyramids, pagodas, fresh cream meringues (very exotic in 1961).

________________________________________________

Clinigan's, Newsagent and Sweet Shop

"Clinigan's sold stuff like Mivvi ice creams, Cowan's Highland Toffee, snowballs, Spanish Gold 'tobacco', Lucky Bags, Fry's 5 Boys, Caramac, Blackjacks, Bazooka chewing gum, Duncan's Walnut Whips, iced tablet, a poke of bonbons, pan drops and Parma Violets (to mask the smell of alcohol so your dad wouldn't be 'caught out')."

The Store

" 'The Divi'  was a big annual day out with long queues at Bread Street Coop. There was a loyalty scheme whereby you got cash back and the money went to buy necessities such as school uniform, new shoes etc."

Tokens, Coupons  and Stamps

"I opened my parents' packs of Kensita's ciggies, to save the coupons redeemable against gifts. ('We better hurry up and smoke some more if we're going to get that Li-lo out the catalogue in time for summer!!')"

Ice Cream  -  The Park Café  AND  Remo's

"Remo was an elderly slim Italian man with a moustache.  He always wore a white coat. The popular drink was Coke Float (ice cream in Coke).

Paper Stall

"FAB 208 magazine was for me.  It had all the lyrics to the hit parade in it so we could sing them on top of the SMT green and cream bus from St Andrew's Square on the way to Sunday outings at Gullane Beach, or in whatever car my Dad had bought from Trotter's Garage in the Pleasance.

Ottie Gall, Barbers

"Ottie Gall, the barbers, was in the next block (It's still there, as if preserved in aspic with its wood panelled individual booths.)  It was for old men.

I was taken to get my hair cut at Bob's in Tollcross (the Comely Bank branch came later) where I'd be allowed to have it styled in a quiff like Billy J Kramer!"

Rankins, Fruit Shop

"Opposite the foot of Leslie Place was posh fruit shop, Rankins.  They even sold fresh pineapples, melons & tangerines wrapped in blue waxed and gold paper and posh apples imported from Canada called Macintosh Reds."

Keith Main, London, England:  December 20+23, 2008

BLACKHALL

An extract from

Recollections

The Milk Train

"As a pre-teenager, I lived in Craigleith Road, near to Blackhall, from 1957 to 1962.

Quite often, I awoke in the early hours, probably around 3 to 5am, to hear a goods train to the south travelling into central Edinburgh. My mother advised me that it was the milk train, but I have no further information.

[Leith Docks]

Chancelot Mill was once a prominent landmark at Bonnington with a tower and large clock faces.

Around 1970, the mill moved to Western Harbour, Leith, now part of the Edinburgh Waterfront development area.

Christmas Tree Warehouse at Canonmills  -  December 1992 ©

1991  to  1996

Christmas Tree Warehouse

(Canonmills)

When Clarks Stonemasons moved from Canonmills to  West Shore Road in 1991, this left the premises vacant for the next four years.

They were used each December until 1995 to sell Christmas trees.

In 1996, the building was demolished and Christmas trees were sold from the yard.

Edinburgh at Work  -  George Christie's Building Yard  -  Albert Street, off Easter Road ©

1991  to  1996

George Christie Building Supplies

(Easter Road)

George Christie's, in 1991, had a large yard of building supplies and two floors of metal workshops and storage. 

The premises had been used previously by Cowans as a transport yard and stables.

The area has now been redeveloped as housing.

Crabbies Green Ginger wine was made at Great Junction Street, Leith for many decades until it closed in the 1990s.

I believe that the Crabbies building has now been converted to housing.

Edinburgh at Work  -  Craig & Rose, Paint Manufacturers, Leith Walk, Edinburgh ©

1991 and 1992

Craig & Rose

Paint manufacture

Craig & Rose had a factory making paint, on the west side of Leith Walk, between Leith and Pilrig.

Their greatest claim to fame was that they manufactured the paint used for the Forth Bridge for over 100 years.

In the mid-1990s, the company moved to Fife.

1991

Duncan's

chocolate factory

Duncan's chocolate factory moved from Edinburgh to Bellshill, Lanarkshire, around 1994.  I believe that Duncans is now owned by a company based somewhere around Cumbria.

Jeanette Campbell tells me that she won a competition in her local newspaper to open the Duncan's factory at Bellshill, by pressing a button to start the machinery.  She is now looking for a photo of the occasion.  If you know such a photo, please email me, then I'll pass on the news to Jeanette.

Edinburgh at Work  -  Drysdale  -  Tea and Coffee ©

1991

Drysdale

Drysdale was founded in 1878.

When I took these photos in 1991, the company was based at Grove Street, Fountainbridge  -  but not for much longer!

Forth Bridge 1990s

Painting the bridge

Some of these photos were taken in 1992 and 1993 when the bridge was being painted and the track re-laid.

Following major changes in  responsibilities for maintenance of the bridge, I returned to take more photos in 2005.

The 'health and safety' requirements had been considerably tightened, so I could not repeat the top photo (opposite).

The Forth Rail Bridge is now (in 2005) in the middle of a 7-year repainting programme. When complete, around 2009, the paint is expected to last for a further 20 years.

Harry Ramsden

Fish Restaurant

Newhaven Fishmarket, beside the harbour was converted in the early 1990s to become:

-  a smaller fishmarket.

-  a Newhaven heritage museum

-  a Harry Ramsden restaurant

The restaurant closed after a few years, and has now become a Loch Fyne restaurant.

Edinburgh at Work  -  James Hewit & Sons  -  Tannery at Currie, Edinburgh ©

1992 and 2006

J Hewit & Sons

Tannery

J Hewit & Sons tannery is at Currie, about 5 miles SW of the centre of Edinburgh.

I believe that Hewit's tannery may have previously been the premises of Balerno Paper Mill which started in the 1770s.

Before moving to their premises at Currie originated at the City Tan Works around 1850 on North Greys and Morrison Closes between John Knox's house and North Bridge.

The company was still in business in 2006, but had gone, and the whole site had been flattened by 2013

This web page gives a potted history of the company.

George Mackay

bowling green bowl maker

George Mackay's workshop is at the foot of Blackfriars Street, near the Cowgate, in the Old Town of Edinburgh.

It is now run as a 'one-man' business by Ronnie, who has worked for the company for many years.

So far as I know, it is the only surviving old workshop in the area.  It is one of the few remaining bowls makers in the world.

coal mine

My first tour of the mine was in the 1960s, soon after the mine opened, employing almost  2,000 workers.

In June 1992, operation of the mine passed to Monktonhall Mineworkers Ltd. 

I returned to the mine in 1993 to take some photos.  There were 187 workers. The mine had a 100,000 contract with SSEB that year, but the mine later encountered problems underground and had to close permanently.

I visited Stevenson & Cheyne in the winters of 1991-92 and  1992-93.

The company was then based in an old engineering works at Bonnington, Edinburgh, close to the Water of Leith.  It was the last remaining large industrial company in an area that was once a hive of industry.

Soon after my visit, Stevenson & Cheyne  left  Bonnington and moved to to Butlerfield Industrial Estate, Bonnyrigg,  close to the Newtongrange Mining Museum, in Midlothian.
