The 'Old Days'
Portobello (or 'Porty') was a popular seaside
resort for Edinburgh's citizens and visitors from further afield in the
late 19th century and early 20th century.

There were still busy days as recently as the
1950s and 1960s.
A Golden Days Festival was held in 2002, and
attracted 4,000 visitors. There were classic cars, swing dancing,
archive film shows, donkey rides and live bands, to bring back some
of the enthusiasm of earlier days.
