About this Event

2020 saw 100 years since Leith became part of the City of Edinburgh, prior to that it was a separate burgh. Since we were not able to run these in person last year we are celebrating them this year. Our talks programme explores the rich heritage of Leith and its unique identity.

In this talk Fraser Parkinson will illustrate the rich heritage of Leith through photographs, showing the history and changing face of Leith from the mid-1850s to the present day. Attendees are welcome to contribute to this interactive session.

Fraser is a Blue Badge Tourist Guide, administrator of ‘The Spirit of Leithers’ and ‘Lost Edinburgh’ Facebook pages. He is co-author of publications on Leith and Edinburgh.
