Wardie Farm

1948-50

Thank you to John Sinclair for allowing me to reproduce this photograph of Wardie Farm, taken by his father.  John believes that the photo was probably taken around 1948-50.

The farm buildings were all demolished a few years after this photo was taken.

Another Photo

Here is another photograph of Wardie Farm, also taken by John's father.  This one was taken from a little further to the west along Rosebank Road, looking towards the SW corner of Wardie Farm:

Today

Around 1955, Wardie Farm was sold to Fred Ford who had a building firm at Corstorphine.  He demolished the old farm buildings and built a street, Rosebank Gardens, and a few bungalows on the land.

Around the same time, Fred Ford also bought the old Wardie House and its grounds.  He demolished most of the old house and built a street, Wardie House Lane, and six bungalows, similar to those in Rosebank Gardens, on the land.
