Photos

Thank you to Frank Ferri, Newhaven, Edinburgh, for providing the two photos above.  Frank tells me that these were both reproduced in the Edinburgh Evening News in 2002.

The newspaper's caption for the second photo read:

"Secure:   The quadrangle at the centre of the flats was a safe haven for the youngsters to play in."

Frank also sent his recollections of playing in this area.
