Leith North

View west from Lindsay Road bridge on 15 March 2009 along the wide trackbed of the Caledonian approach from Newhaven station running towards Leith North and the docks behind the camera. At the higher level off to the left stood George Street coal yard. Modern housing now occupies the site and the old yard has gone without trace, as indeed has George Street itself. The former street did however have its 15 minutes of fame, when it pretended to be an area of Glasgow as a setting for the controversial Peter McDougall play Just Another Saturday, broadcast by the BBC in 1975. To view this scene 47 years earlier see image 26330.
