Lamp Post

1842

Thank you to Miles Cumming for allowing me to reproduce his photograph above, showing of one of the 1842 lamp posts at Middle Pier, Granton Harbour.

"As you no doubt would agree, things are changing very quickly around the Granton waterfront.

I was dismayed, to find an original lamp had 'disappeared' shortly after I'd photographed it!.

Maybe it's been saved."

Let's hope the lamp post is being saved, and possibly restored.

Granton Middle Pier, including slipways, wharves and lamp standards have been listed 'Category A' by Historic Scotland since 1989.
