Granton Breakwater

and

East Harbour

Early 1900s

This view looks to the north towards the Eastern Breakwater of Granton Harbour.  Construction of the Eastern breakwater began in 1853.

The photograph was taken from Granton Road, and looks down over the houses in Wardie Square.

This postcard was posted from Edinburgh to London on 7 October (year not legible but the card had a penny stamp so it would have been 1918, 1919, or 1920.

The message written on this card read:

"Wednesday.

This place is where all the fishing boats come in.  We walked right along the pier yesterday, had a good view.

How are you getting on?  I thought of you a lot."

 

Please e-mail me if you think you can identify any of the boats in this picture.  Thank you.  -  Peter Stubbs:  December 28, 2006.
