Valentine's Postcard

Leith Walk

1902

Tramcar approaching the foot of Leith Walk

Postcard by Valentine  -   Tram approaching the foot of Leith Walk, 1902

  Reproduced with acknowledgement to the National Tramway Museum, Crich, Derbyshire, England

 

Leith Walk

This view looks down Leith Walk towards the 'Fit o' the Walk'

There are no cars to be seen in the street - just:

-  a large group of children

-  a tramcar

-  a cycle

-  a horse and cart.

The number given to this photo by Valentine & Sons indicates that the original photo would have been taken in 1902.

The moon has been added to the photo later.  It would never appear as a full moon in that position to the sky (looking to the NNE down Leith Walk).  Valentines added moons and 'night time effects' to many of their postcards.  They published a collection of photos titled 'Moonlight Series'.
