Leith Walk

It is over 80 years since anyone caught a train at Leith Walk station. I imagine it succumbed to competition from the frequent trams up 'The Walk' as passenger trains continued to pass it on the way to the North Leith branch which didn't close until 1947 on the eve of nationlisation. The ticket office was set back from Leith Walk where these advertising hoardings now stand see image 22889.
