George Washington Wilson Postcard

Thank you to Kenneth G Williamson for sending me this photograph of Newhaven Esplanade, by George Washington Wilson.  The postcard was posted in 1904 to George Street, Leith.

Kenneth added:

Street Names

"Here is a postcard of Newhaven which was sent to one of my wife's relatives in 1904.  The address on the back is interesting.  I believe streets in Leith with the same name as Edinburgh and vice versa were changed, some time after the Second World War to avoid confusion.  Thus George Street in Leith became North Fort Street."

Bomb

"During the Second World War a bomb fell on George Street, Leith."

Kenneth G Williamson:  January 18, 2010

Bombs  -  Edinburgh & Leith

Here is a list of bombs that fell on Edinburgh and Leith during World War II.  The bomb that Kenneth mentions above fell on June 18, 1940.
