My Photographs

Around Edinburgh

1990s and 2000s

This page displays a map covering the area from Cramond Island in the west to Portobello in the east.  Edinburgh, Leith and Newhaven are close to the centre of the map.  At the top of the map is part of the Firth of Forth. 

The yellow circles will show where several of my photos were taken from in the 1990s and early 2000s.  The arrows within the circles will show the direction that I was facing.

NOTES on the MAP

I have used this 1860 map on several pages in this web site, to show links to photographs from many different periods, 1850s     1950s     2000.

Remarkably little has changed in the area covered by this map, except for the demolition of St James Square and its replacement by buildings for the Scottish Office, a hotel and the St James Shopping Centre.  This area is immediately to the East of the arrow numbered 8 on the map.



The photographs linked to this map are described as having been taken around 2000.  This is an approximate date.  They have, in fact been taken from the early 1990s to date.
