Shrubhill Depot

This photo was taken at the western end of Shrubhill depot, the part furthest from Leith Walk.  Here is where the winding engine for the cables for some of the Edinburgh cable car routes once stood.

Later, trams were built here.  Shrubhill depot is now closed.  Many of the buildings have been demolished, and there are plans for housing to be built on the site, but this building is still standing.
