The Corner of Granton Road and Boswall Road

Granton Road with its ornate posts for the tram wires leads straight ahead then round the corner and down the hill to Granton Square.

 Boswall Road, leads to to the right, to  the east, towards Challenger Lodge, now St Columba's Hospice.

 

Note the large house.  It later became the Royal Forth Yacht Club clubhouse, and is now residential accommodation.

The elm tree to the left is now larger. The old white telephone box is at the top of Wardie Steps in this photo but has since
been removed.  There are now large gates in the wall (behind the man) and the letter box has been moved to the left of these gate.
