Portobello Beach

Page 1

Portobello was a popular seaside resort in the early 1900s.  Portobello lies on the Firth of Forth, and is about five miles to the east of central Edinburgh.

Above are three photos from the early 1900s.  The first was posted from Portobello in 1911.  The second and third are taken from a very similar position.  The beach is crowded in both.  The chimney is smoking in the Thyne post card.
