Trinity Crescent

Devlin Family

Newhaven Road is one of the streets of Trinity, Newhaven and Leith that I photographed in connection with members of the Devlin family, trawler owners who operated from Granton Harbour.  I intend to add more details about the Devlin family and their business to this web site later.

The Devlin family's connection was with No 27 Trinity Crescent, the building with the brown window frames on the right-hand side of its blue door.

Te tenements in this picture can also be seen behind the road roller on this old postcard:

'Old Chain Pier'

This photograph was taken from beside the Old Chain Pier Public House, looking to the south across Trinity Crescent.

The 'Old Chain Pier' Public House was the booking office for steamers that sailed from the Old Chain Pier, lost in a storm in October 1898.

The old Railway Line

The old railway line from Canal Street Station, and later from Waverley Station, ran past Trinity Station, just up the short lane (also part of Trinity Crescent) at the extreme right-hand side of this picture. 

Bathers used to catch to early morning train and alight at Trinity to walk down Trinity Crescent and bathe in the Firth of Forth.

The railway line has now been lifted and the route is now used by walkers and cyclists.
