Dumbiedykes

The old houses of Dumbiedykes, in the streets close to Holyrood Park,  shown in this map, lasted until the 1960s, when the area was re-developed.

Many former residents of Dumbiedykes have emailed me with fond memories of the area and the people who lived there.  Here are some of their recollections:

Dumbiedykes - Houses and Streets  1950/1960s

Dumbiedykes - Factories and Shops  1950s

Dumbiedykes - Penny Tenement  1950s

Dumbiedykes - People and Play  1940-1960s
