Craigmillar and Niddrie housing estates lie to the SE of Holyrood Park.
They are about 3 miles from the centre of Edinburgh.
housing in these areas is being replaced by new. Almost all of the
houses in this picture are now unoccupied, and have been 'boarded-up'.
Some of the houses in Wauchope Crescent, near the old laundrette, have
already been demolished.
launderette listed on the key to this photo is actually in the background,
almost hidden from view.
isolated houses in the streets in this picture are still occupied (at
March 2007), but most of the traffic in the area is now learner drivers
under instruction in the deserted streets. Some of the streets have
now lost their names. Street signs were taken down from the houses
and auctioned as souvenirs in 2006, even though a few of the houses in
these streets are still occupied.
