Once, I drove off with the pump nozzle still in the van. It caused a bit of damage, not much to van but but it ripped the pipe off pump and damaged the pump. We used to get vouchers for mugs and glasses and as I was getting petrol all the time collected cases loads. I still use a few of these free mugs and glasses today. Queensland, Australia Thank you to Bob Sinclair who wrote: The Tudor Picture House. I thought it was the other way round.
Another Stockbridge Picture House? It was on the second floor of the building which showed two films, one of Old Mother Riley and another of Charlie Chaplin. Does anyone know if it was a hall that could be hired , or was it a Picture House? Bob Sinclair, Queensland, Australia: January 19, Reply to Bob Sinclair?

Recollections 14 Eddie Duffy. This was situated in St. You did have to climb up a steep staircase to get in, so maybe this is the same place? A block of flats now stands there. Eddie Duffy, Fox Covert, Edinburgh: He was Mr McArthur and his sister acted as Receptionist. When you rang to make an appointment, her sepulchral tones announcing: However, this actually set realistic expectations as Mr McArthur never used any form of anaesthesia when drilling teeth and it was invariably a white knuckle ride followed by a splitting headache for hours after.
Our house had beautiful carved ceilings, a lovely oriel window looking out onto Glenogle Road, and two good bay windows upstairs. I recall that even the washing line stands and carved iron window boxes were all listed, as was the house.
It was a happy time with Sya, a toddler, there and Fergus, a baby. We have often wished we could have held on to the house when we moved. I recall Sya playing 'Poo Sticks' on the little bridge. It was a great place to live. I lived at 2 Glenogle Place, just around the corner, for 22 years until I moved to Canada in I was puzzled by Lorraine's description of the house and could not recollect such a place, so I visited the Colonies on Google Maps.
Here is a copy of the photo which shows 31 and 32 Bell Place. As you can see it does not fit her description, and is how I remember it. I have sent a reply to Norman Pope, and have passed on the latest email address that I have for Loraine Bruce to him in the hope that he will be able to get in touch with her and discuss the subject that he has raised above. Bridge over the Water of Leith.
So far as I am aware, the bridge has been rebuilt, but over the Water of Leith but its position has not changed. It is certainly it is not as far west as Rintoul Place. I also frequently crossed the bridge during my first few years after arriving in Edinburgh in At that time, I lived in the house at the western end of Rocheid Path, on the corner of Inverleith Terrace and Arboretum Avenue, so the bridge was on my route to Central Edinburgh via Canonmills. I remember they had hens running round the yard with a big henhouse coop on the left as you went in; so big in fact that I went inside it once, thru the opening for the hens.
I was a terrible little imp then. There was the Heart of Midlothian Swimming Club on a Monday night after the pool closed, then there was the Mixed Bathing on a Wednesday when we, as a family, all attended. We went there on other nights as well, of course. It was a great 'melting pot' of all the people from the areas around, not just Stockbridge. Les Braby, Borders, Scotland: This supports the view that Lorraine would have lived at No. In fact if you go to Google Maps and look at the back of 32 Bell Place it also has the cast iron window box retainers which now overlooks Rintoul Place.
So at sometime between then and now the Council have changed the names of the streets down and off Glenogle Road. Does anybody have any idea when this happened and why? Perhaps when the City amalgamated with Leith? I hope all the above makes sense, I was beginning to doubt myself till I looked at the old maps. Thanks for your comments, Les. However, they have left me somewhat confused: My modern maps still show Rintoul Place as being in the position that you found it in the older maps, at near the western end of Glenogle Road, opposite the swimming baths.
If you have any recent maps that suggest that the bridge has moved or that some of the streets have been re-named, I would be interested to see scans of them. Thank you to Les Braby for writing again on 22 October, agreeing that the bridge has not moved and that the streets have not been renamed. However, Les explained that he had been working from a Google Maps page that had added the wrong names to some of the streets. That's the first time that I've been told about errors like that on Google.
We did not live in 31 but in 32 Bell Place, the one with the cast iron. I served my apprenticeship there, starting in when we were in Prestonfield. We moved to Raeburn Place in Jimmy Preacher was a friend of my dad, who was also a baker. What I learned from Jimmy, I'll never forget.
He was a true craftsman as a baker and confectioner and owe him a lot. Sadly he passed away a few years ago. It's nice to read your recollections of Stockbridge. William Stewart, Kingston, Ontario, Canada: Queensland, Australia Thank you to Dorothy Finlay who wrote: My grandfather, John Finlay lived in Dean Street.
He was one of eleven children. He was killed at the battle of the Somme in Does anyone in Stockbridge remember the Finlays? I remember the Grand Cinema where you always caught fleas. Dorothy Finlay, Queensland, Australia: We used to get two films and an episode of Flash Gordon. The seats were rock hard and it was always cold.
I remember it mainly because i had my first snog there in the front row. Message posted in EdinPhoto guestbook, January 25, I remember it mainly because I had my first snog there, in the front row. Reply posted in EdinPhoto guestbook, October 3, My uncle posed some of the family and took the photograph.
There were several bells down in the kitchen, but my mother insisted they be taken off as she was fed up with my brothers being annoying! I was contacted some time ago with the current tenants. The house has been changed enormously. There is no longer a marble fireplace in the house. It wasn't there when they purchased the property. Recollections 21 Eddie Duffy. Mrs Guthrie's Toy School. The school was located in the back courtyard between Dean Street and Bedford Crescent.
If you feel that you might be able to help Dave to get in touch with Philip McIntosh, please email me , then I'll give you Dave's email address so that can try sending a message direct to him. I believe he had a butcher's shop in Stockbridge. We last met in Osnabruck Germany in when we were in the army. I'd be much obliged if anybody can help me to contact him. Message posted in the EdinPhoto guestbook: His name was Peter McErlean. We used to visit him as kids in the s s and possibly in the s.
He was very hospitable. He used to make us ' worm biscuits ' two Rich Tea biscuits squashed together with butter until the butter came out the holes.
He used to s e w the ' Oor Willie ' and 'The Broons ' cartoons from the Sunday Post together to make a comic for us to read when we visited him. He was a kind man. I didn't like the toilet in the Jamaica street flat as it was shared , and smelly. But apart from that , the flat was ok. Caroline Wilson, April 18, Some of my ancestors, according to their marriage certificate, were married in at the following address: There are villas there now. I wonder if one of the villa's was called Raeburn Hall and was possibly the church manse?
Maybe your website user's may have a memory of this building. Madeline Sweasey, Trinity, Edinburgh: August 5, Reply to Madeline? If you'd like to send a reply to Madeline, please email me to let me know, then I'll pass on her email address to you.
The Wirral, Merseyside, Cheshire. Thank you to Margaret Fairbairn for following up the comments about Jimmy the Milkman with his horse and cart at Stockbridge in Recollections 2 and 3 above. Jimmy and his Milk Horse. He was our milkman. A lady who lived in our stair always fed the milk horse. One day she was chatting away to another old lady in Raeburn P lace , opposite Preachers the Bakers, and was so engrossed in her conversation that she forgot about giving the horse his treat.
He got so fed up waiting that he took himself off and the cart and went through Preachers ' window. Jaime is looking for suggestions as to which Edinburgh street might be used in his programme, and has invited me to add his request to the EdinPhoto web site.
We're looking to identify a specific street in the city with an interesting 20th century history that could be explored for a one hour film. Each episode focused on the history of a different London street and the stories were told by the people who lived and worked on them over the last years. Across three episodes on BBC Two, we'll focus on three particular Scottish streets including one in Edinburgh and their residents, tracing their history over the 20th century.
It's a living history and we hope to find residents and workers past and present to tell us about their experiences as opposed to a TV presenter or historian who is connected to the place by research only. Ideally they'll have the same architecture as it would have had in the early 20th century at least , a street that isn't solely commercial properties and hopefully some long standing residents living there too.
September 12, 1. Many of the people who have sent the fondest memories of growing up in Edinburgh have written about streets that have since been demolished, such as East Thomas Street and the Dumbiedykes area.
However, there are still areas where I think you might be likely to find some old residents who have lived for a long time in the street, and still a 'community spirit' amongst some of the residents. Perhaps you might like to consider one of these streets. Ten such schemes were built in Edinburgh between and , including one at Stockbridge Reid Terrace, beside the Water of Leith, and ten streets parallel to it, to the east.
Here is an old engraving and a recent photo of Reid Terrace. It has a mix of shops, cafes, etc. House prices rose in the second half of the 20th century, as this became an attractive area to live, beside the Water of Leith and only about half a mile from Princes Street.
An annual Stockbridge 'street party' used to be held in this street. Here are two photos of the shop at 51 St Stephen Street. Unusually, for Edinburgh's New Town, the street has houses with front gardens. About twenty years ago, I met one of the residents of the street who had made a scale model of his house.
More Replies to Jaime? There must be lots of other Edinburgh streets that could be suggested. If you'd like to send a message to Jaime, suggesting a street in Edinburgh that he might like to consider for his programme, please email me to let me know, then I'll pass on his email address to you. I wonder if any of your contributors from Stockbridge have any memories of that Company. We had a drill hall and clubhouse in Dean Street.
In we won the football championships of both League and Cup. There was a picture taken of the team but I have lost mine and I wonder if anyone has one. I used to live at 13 Dean Park Street so the stories of some people from there and from Bedford Street really bring back some good memories.
Buckinghamshire, England A few people have already mentioned Stockbridge cinemas. Here is another contribution, this one from Robert McLean who writes: By the time I was growing up in the s it had become a bingo hall and later, I believe, it became a casino. In fact, I believe both her grandparents were from Stockbridge. She could look out over Kerr St onto Deanhaugh St.
In fact, there was a huge collection of Smiths throughout Stockbridge. This meant my uncles, aunties and cousins were all within a few minutes' walk. Robert Mclean, Buckingham, England: We would catch minnows and make gang huts from wood we found along the river. We exchanged scraps and played: There were not as many cars then. If you had a good whip and a piece of hemp string you could make it jump and spin for hours!
One team would hide and the other team would have to catch them. The boundaries were about a half a mile radius from the den, usually Portgower Place, and so, again, you learned how to: These games all took place around the streets.
You got to know the neighbourhood and all the children who stayed there. Do Not Walk on the Grass We were chased a lot by the Keepers, though few of them would risk their air of authority by actually running after us! Nowadays only a small part is given over to allotments. Summer in the Park. The owners had a special building where the model yachts were kept.
This has since been pulled down and the pond has now become a wild bird sanctuary. In the summer time you would make a fishing net from an old flour bag made of cloth in those days a piece of wire and a bamboo cane. You would catch minnows and put them in a jam jar. Sadly, by the time you got them home they were usually dead. Winter in the Park. How did you test the ice? This had been the site of Ack-Ack guns in case of a German bombing raid.
It eventually was bulldozed away in the 19 50s. I walked there most days, about a mile. If it rained, a penny fare on the tram would be the treat. School meals were provided for 5 pence. We had f ree school milk at break time; it came in wee glass bottles and was given out by the milk monitor. In the winter , it would sometimes freeze and the foil tops would be forced up by the frozen milk.
They had pot - bellied cast iron heaters in the classroom and all the children were asked to bring a lump of coal to feed the stoves and the open fires.
There was a coal shortage as the miners were on strike. Stockbridge had two cinemas: You could get in to The Grand for a penny and stay as long as you wanted, in those days they were all continuous performances, which meant you could go in at 2.
History of 'The Grand'. The rich of the New Town would have their servants go there to collect their carriages and bring them to their fine houses in Moray Place, Queen Street and the like.
With the rise of the automobile it turned itself into a cinema and showed films. The programme changing twice a week and then every 2 days as the competition from television increased.
Both were very popular as they were cheap and you had a chance to meet friends. I remember that there were two halls, one in Allan Street and another in Dean Street. I remember the street parties held to celebrate the ending of the war.
The streets were festooned with bunting and Union Jacks and music was provided by wind-up gramophones and by radios with extension wires leading from the lower houses. It was a 'wet' dairy. There was a machine into which the milk was decanted and where bottles were filled , 6 at a time.
There were 4 sizes of bottle: So, we had to have hundreds of bottles ready with their cardboard stoppers. When the shop was quiet , we would be filling them up ready for the next day 's deliveries.
This could go on into the night and we would get home at all hours. The bottles had to be washed when they came back from the customers. Hot water and soap powder was used and there was a cylindrical brush attached to an electric motor.
This was an ongoing job. We employed Mrs Forrest, who stayed in Bedford Street. She came in every day to wash the bottles and do any cleaning that we needed done.
The milk we bottled was delivered by a horse was called Prince with his horse - drawn cart. Prince and the cart were housed in a mews off Dean Park Street , a run-down area where the rich 'the Ann Street mob ' used to keep their horses and carriages , with space above for their drivers to live. We employed a man to do the deliveries. Working at the Dairy. We ate all our meals there, did our homework, socialised and helped out when we could.
At night, around 11 pm, sometimes later, we went home once all the work was done. The dairy was open 7 days a week , and at Christmas and New Year we opened for half a day so that customers could get their cream and milk fresh. We also sold milk straight from the churn. When we went on to glass bottles the complaint was that the glass ' made the milk taste funny '. Friends at Mary's Place. It was a very basic way to live. You could buy gas mantles for about 2d each.
They were made of cotton which had been treated, so they were brittle. The y gave off a good light but if they were holed the light became very poor. Death by carbon monoxide poisoning was a very real hazard. It was said that if things in your life became too much, as long as you had a shilling for the meter, you could always stick your head in the oven and get out that way!

Mr Nimmo was reputed by Mother to be fond of the drink, and his purple nose confirmed her suspicions without the need for any independent evidence or indeed professional opinion. Buckinghamshire, England with a few comments added by Peter Stubbs Thank you to Robert McLean, who wrote Recollections 28 above, for writing again with more recollections of growing up in Stockbridge.
Move to the Colonies. With a sizeable extended family in Stockbridge, I was familiar with the Colonies as I had a two aunts and their families already there. We moved to Colville Place high doors. O ne of my aunts lived in the next street, also Colville Place , but a low door. My mother had moved with her parents and sister from India Place to Collins Place in the early s, so I was now growing up in the same street as my mum.
Streets and House Numbers. The Colonies at Stockbridge consisted of 11 parallel streets of houses between Glenogle Road and the Water of Leith, built s low cost housing for artisans, from onwards. Each row of houses consisted of separate houses on two floors: It was the rows of houses, rather than the streets between them that were named. November 10, After Falshaw Bridge. Here are a couple of views of the bend in the road where Linton's shop once stood.
Engraving - 19th century. Mr Linton retired and sold to another nice gentleman, a Mr Kelly, who painted the shop - front grey. Like almost all Colonies kids , I became a strong swimmer and I loved going to the baths, particularly in winter when it was virtually empty and you could go in at 7pm and stay until 10 pm.
I can remember going to Glennies to see the great Bobby McGregor show off his speed in the pool. Parts of Gabriel's Road still exist: The 'Snakey' was the path that zigzagged up the grassy bank, with railings beside it, on the west side of Glenogle Swimming Baths. I remember it had VR embossed on the front. We kids would have great fun down the Dam in late spring or early summer: Bob Mclean, Buckingham, England: It certainly helped developing your quadriceps , climbing the stairs and making sure you would be in time for school.
My Teacher was a Miss Smith Ian Tait, Pitlochry, Perthshire, Scotland: H e would have been born in the early - s. His address on my mum ' s birth certificate, was St Stephens Street, and I 've been told that he also lived in Bedford Street, and that he was in the army and his profession was given as 'Hotel, Boots'. My grandmother was Catherine , a domestic servant. After giving my mum her name, he left her. That 's all the information I know about my grandparents. If anyone knows anything more, I'd love to know ".
Kathleen Hughes, Liverpool, England: If you know anything about Kathleen's grandparents and would like to send an email to her, please email me , then I'll pass on her email address to you. Upon reading recollections of Stockeree , I remembered Cheyne Street and 'The Slanty', the section of wall where boys would dare one another to walk across it. It was refreshing to read the recollections of Stockbridge.
Alex Dick, London, Ontario, Canada: Australia Thank you to Simon Clegg who wrote: It was opposite a school of some sort. I have a picture of the door knocker from that shop.
Is it really 35 years ago that I came to live in Edinburgh? I'm now living in Australia, with gum trees and kookaburras in my garden. I have some history of this building and picture s of it: Can anyone suggest where I should be looking?
That would be extremely helpful. Kohn Keen, Sandtoft, Berkshire, England: August 28, Reply to John Keen. Good luck in your search for a suitable picture of the old fire station! Here are three places that you could try contacting. All are in Edinburgh. I trust that you'll be able to find their email contact details on the Internet: If anybody would like to contact John Keen possibly with information relating to his father-in-law, John MacDonald please email me to let me know, then I'll pass on his email address to you.
He rightly identifies Mr Borzecki's shop. It was called Hermitage Place. There were only about 10 houses in all. I 've lived here in South Africa since and most of my family in Edinburgh have passed away. I ' ve been trying to find out more about Hermitage Place but I believe its changed name. It was quite a famous little street. Burke n' Hare rented a room in one of the places, so it has a lot of history behind it.
I was actually born in the front room of no 3 on top of some old copies of The Daily Mirror!! I remember , as a small girl , a man used to come around and light the gas lamps at dusk. T here were 2 huge lanterns at either end of the street quite magical to a child , may I add. He was called The Lamplighter. Well , there are so many stories and memories of ,Hermie', as we called it. I could write a book!
I f you can help me find out what its called now or if anyone else out there remembers it , I would greatly appreciate hearing from them ". August 12, Reply to Liz. Here is what my books tell me: The street was originally secluded by gates at either end , may have been named for this house, but in any case, the name was fancy.
If you'd like to send a message about Stockbridge to Liz, please email me to let me know, then I'll pass on her email address to you.
Trinity, Edinburgh Thank you to Alan Wilson for adding to my response above to the question asked by Liz Karr in her Recollections 38 above. Th is page on the Canmore web site states: It really is a lovely street, I often make a point of walking along that way. Alan Wilson, Trinity, Edinburgh: January 14, Edinburgh Shops. I have been photographing some of the Edinburgh shops over about the past twenty years.
The shop seems to have changed little over the decades. Please click on the thumbnail image above to enlarge the photo and read a little about the shop. He allegedly started in a bakery he owned in Stockbridge, around , but no one including Golden Wonder seems to know where the bakery was.
Can anybody provide an answer? If you can help to answer the question that Ryan asks above, please email me to let me know, then I'll pass on Ryan's email address to you. The building now occupied by Gallery Mirages used to be a bakery in the s.
It was a wholesale bakery, not a shop. Whether it was a bakery 30 years previously I don't know. I used to get hot rolls from them in the early hours of the morning in the course of weaving my way home after a night out.
I can still taste them. Giffnock, East Renfrewshire, Scotland. They were a source of great entertainment as the blanket hanging from a clothesline was drawn back with a flourish to reveal playmates, and the big ones performed a turn. On one occasion I recall a cabbage as a lottery prize! Lucky folks got an ice cream from D'Angelo as he cycled his ice cream trike up the cobbled street. We had back green exploits, shouting to the Bernard Street kids over the wall as we played shops with horsetail grass for sale in the lee of the bomb shelter.
Endless pictures flew through my mind when I read Alex's and Robert's paragraphs above. His Mum, Ruby, brothers David and Alan figured large in my life. He taught me how to fall, staying rigid, whipping out my hands at the last minute. He also pointed out to a fascinated tiny girl, that if you performed an indiscretion in the tub, bubbles flew to the surface. The oddest memories stick!
It was a gentle place to grow up despite the War. I have a great pic of me and my infant brother Colin taken looking towards Fettes College. Thank you to Jane Zeitlin for writing again. My Brother and Robert Thomson. My Mum used to look after Robert and his brothers when their Mum went out to work. I remember my brother, Colin, being born on my 4th birthday. Dad revealed the surprise.
I thought the 'surprise' would have been of a more interesting nature, such as a scooter. I bit poor old Robert in rage and frustration. Frank Davidson Christchurch, New Zealand.
