Wardie School

Playing Fields

1947

Wardie School and its grounds lie between Granton Road and Netherby Road in the Trinity district of Edinburgh, about three miles to the north of the City Centre.

The school opened in 1931.  The the time this aerial view was taken, in 1947, shortly after the end of the 2nd World War, the northern part of the school grounds housed the temporary accommodation of Lochinvar Royal Navy Camp.
