Thank you to Jack Gillon for allowing me to reproduce this photograph, looking down Arthur Street towards Holyrood Park at the foot of the steep hill.

This is one of many photos that Jack took in the 1960s.  Others can be found on his Flickr page.

Several people have contacted me saying how they have enjoyed seeing this photo and the others that Jack has posted on his Flickr page.

"I'm on cloud nine after seeing this photo and other photos on Jack Gillon's  Flickr page.

This was my old stomping ground.  The photo above shows the brae (in Arthur Street) and my wee hoose.  Its entrance was next to the greengrocer's shop in East Arthur Place and my windows overlooked the brae.

Other photos on Jack's page show the brae and my hoose from different angles - also my great grandmother's hoose, my grandmothers hoose and the surrounds including Prospect Street"

"Jack Gillon's photograph above of East Arthur Place and the Tizer lorry shows the same block of flats as I photographed being demolished in 1961.  See below:
