Old Album

Below are 8 of the photos from an old album that was sold in a jumble sale at Portobello, a few years ago.  They appear to be photos taken for Leith Council in the years leading up to the amalgamation with Edinburgh.

I took photos from the same locations recently.

-  In some cases practically none of the original scene remains.

-  In other cases, very little appears to have changed over the intervening hundred years.
