Granton Road

Market Gardens

This photo was taken from upstairs on a No 8 bus as it turned from Ferry Road (upper-right) into Granton Road (lower-left).  It was fortunate that the cars were at the traffic lights, adding a little colour to the photo.

Here is another photo that I took a few seconds earlier, just before the bus turned the corner:

Market Gardens

I took the photo to show the white house on the corner, I am told used to belong to a market garden that lay to the east side of the southern end of Granton Road.       [Acknowledgement:  John Stevenson, Trinity, Edinburgh, for telling me this.]

There used to be many market gardens in this area.  The Royal Botanic Gardens Library has records showing where the market gardens were situated and what they grew.  [Acknowledgement:  Gordon Hay, Trinity, Edinburgh, for telling me this.]
