Marine Gardens


Scottish National Exhibition

Marine Gardens, Portobello, were created in 1909 using many of the buildings that had formed the Scottish National Exhibition at Saughton Park in 1908.

The Scottish National Exhibition in 1908 included a Senegalese village.  Portobello's Marine Gardens included a Somali Village, pictured above in 1910.
