This whole area has been
developed (more than once) since the 1844 map was published. On the
aerial view, we see the tenement housing of Dalry in the centre of
the picture. Above this is new housing being built on the site of
distillery closed around 1990, leaving only one distillery now operating
in Edinburgh - the North British Distillery, close to the Heart of
Midlothian football ground.
The old industrial area
surrounding the Union Canal basin (lower right) is also now being developed.
