The View

In this view, the new Leith Academy, St Andrew Place, near the western edge of Leith Links, not far from the 'Foot of the Walk', stands out prominently against the housing in the background.

The school, designed by George Craig, was was only a few years old when this postcard was published.  The school was built in 1895-98.

The school is now (2006) Leith Academy Primary School.
