Slateford Road

This photograph shows tramway tracks on Slateford Road, with the chimney of the Caledonian Brewery in the background, and the tenements on the left leading round into Wardlaw Street.

Judging by the No 8 bus in the background, this photograph would have been taken in the early-mid 1950s as the tram tracks were being lifted.

This site also has two other photos of the lifting of this track. They are  Roadworks 2 and Roadworks 3

 

Thank you!

The photograph above was originally added to this web site, with the title:

'Where and When? - No 4'

Within ten days I had received an email identifying the location.

Thank you: Douglas Beath, Tasmania, Australia and Sheila Veitch, Kirkcaldy, Scotland.
