Carnegie Street

Here is a view of one of the streets in the Dumbiedykes area of Edinburgh in 1959.

There were shops at the corners of many of the street in the district.  This was a time when shopping was done locally, rather than at 'out of town' supermarkets.

The large photograph above was one of several dozen taken in 1959 by Adam H Malcolm in the Dumbiedykes area of Edinburgh.  These photographs were taken shortly before the houses were demolished.  Adam H Malcolm donated these photographs to the Edinburgh City Libraries in the 1960s and they can now be found in the Library's Edinburgh Room Collection.
