Forbes Street

Forbes Street was part of the Dumbiedykes area of Edinburgh, close to the north-west corner of Holyrood Park.  Housing in the area was demolished around the early-1960s and replaced by new housing.

The large photograph above was one of several dozen taken in 1959 by Adam H Malcolm in the Dumbiedykes area of Edinburgh.  These photographs were taken shortly before the houses were demolished.  Adam H Malcolm donated these photographs to the Edinburgh City Libraries in the 1960s and they can now be found in the Library's Edinburgh Room Collection.
