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