Merchiston

One man and his dog approaching along the Caledonian trackbed from the direction of Merchiston station in 1972. View is south west, with Dundee Street footbridge see image 29621 a short distance behind the camera. On the right is Angle Park Terrace with the tower of St Michael's Church, standing in the background at no 1 Slateford Road. [Editor's note: A definite 'Kitchen Sink' feel about this one - listen for the church bells tolling, a Salvation Army band playing and the sounds of a Mr Burton murdering his trumpet in one of the top floor tenement flats in the background. Only problem is it's not raining....]
