Bomb beside Leith Junction Station

Junction Bridsge Station + Largo Place  -  Air Raid Damage, 1941 ©

"Your posting of bomb damage beside Leith Junction Station, added in December 2014, brought back personal memories for me of when I used to deliver mail in Leith, as a Student during the Christmas Holiday’s, and had Largo Place as part of my round.

The bombed-out house on the corner was still a gap site in 1980-81 when I used to pass it on my round.  I knew that it had been bombed during the war so it was extremely interesting to see the photographs that you posted."

"I was interested the photo posted, a while back, at the top of the current page.
