Granton terminus  -  Route 47/X47

'Penicuik City Link'

The No 47 and X47 buses here, with their distinctive blue roofs, are standing at their new terminus on the western side of Granton Square.  Previously the terminus was on the eastern side of the square in front of HMS Claverhouse, formerly Granton Hotel.

Routes 37 (Penicuik to Silverknowes) and 47 / X47 (Penicuik to Granton) use this livery with the branding 'Penicuik City Link'.

There are usually very few days in the year when snow falls at Granton, but it was falling when this photo was taken.

Late 1950s

Here is a similar view, looking down on the square from a similar position, taken about fifty years earlier.  Please click on the image below to enlarge this photo, and to read people's memories of Granton Square in the 1950s.
