Newhaven Streets

Annfield Promenade

This view looks to the east along the southern shore of the Firth of Forth, from Newhaven towards Leith. 

The photograph was probably taken about a hundred years ago.  Today, in 2005, the houses on the right can still be seen, but the slope down to the water has vanished, having become land within the Leith Western Harbour complex.

Thank you to Walter Lyle Hume for sending the following recollections of Newhaven

Walter wrote:

Annfield, Newhaven

"Whilst acknowledging the picture post card of Annfield, Newhaven, to be very old, I recollect playing on the fore-shore.

We used to call it going down the 'Bulwarks', and over a period of time watched this area being filled in with mud from the dredging operations pre-war to create what was then known as the extension, and now the enclosed dock area."

"This postcard from 100 years ago shows:

The Red  Tenements at the foot of Hawthorne Vale

The uppermost flat with the windows on the top-right of the red brick  building is No.8 was Big Geordie Main's flat.

The Houses on Annfield

The green shop front, next to the yellow shop front is where Gibby Hare's Pub was (and hopefully still is)."
