Shrubhill Tram Depot

Edinburgh's current trams were built in Spain, but there was a time when Edinburgh Corporation's trams were home-made, here at Shrubhill Depot on Leith Walk. Over the decades the buildings have been demolished and are retreating from the Walk, with currently (March 2015) only the chimney stack and the derelict buidlings on Dryden Street remaining. The site is earmarked for housing, but there doesn't seem to be any hurry about this (perhaps surprisingly for a large site less than a mile from Princes Street). See image 24094
