The backs of the houses in

Wardie Square

This view looks down from Granton Road, over backs of the  houses on the south side of Wardie Square, to Granton Eastern Harbour and the  Eastern Breakwater on a fine summer day.

On the left-hand side of the picture are Granton Harbour's Middle Pier, and Western Breakwater with a little of Granton Western Harbour just visible between them.

The Firth of Forth and the hills of Fife can be seen in the background.

This photograph above was taken from close to the middle lamp post, behind the tram in this picture, looking to the right, down the bank from Granton Road to the houses in Wardie Square.

I have been told by a former resident of Wardie Square (1972 to 1994), now living in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, who used to spend a lot of time playing on Granton Beach and climbing trees on the land sloping down  from Granton Road to Wardie Square, in the foreground of the larger picture above used to be known by the kids as the 'Nanny Park', apparently because nanny goats used to be kept there.
