Annfield

This view looks to the east along Annfield, beside the Firth of Forth, in 1910.

There are just two vehicles on the road, a horse-drawn cart and a tram.

The shore, on the right-hand side of this picture was later reclaimed to enable the large Eastern Harbour to be built for Leith Docks.

Newhaven Fishmarket can be seen in the upper right of the picture

This is one of a series of photos posted onto boards in an old album that Archie Foley acquired a few years ago.  Archie believes that these are likely to be official photos that probably once belonged to Leith City Council.

 

Question

What was the tall building straight ahead, beyond the railings in this photo?

Answer

Thank you to Walter Lyle Hume for telling me.

"The tall building is Victoria School."
