The imfamous Leith Police

Not a welcoming place for most visitors but a great tongue twister as a kid.  Many strange accidents of people falling down stairs. What's your memories? but remember the statute of limitations...


Where I was Born

and formative years

From 1956 to the mid 60's living and growing up in East Thomas Street (Chinatown).

The streets are no longer there now so this is as close as I could get to the places of my childhood. Did you live there?



Just my Memories and thoughts.

A great place of learning in leith

Time spent there skiving from school and keeping warm.

Not many other places to go.

Where did you go?

What's the inside like nowadays?

my first memory of a pub

Just round the corner from East Thomas Street. Remember the fish merchant every week with his barrow full of cockles, mussels, welks and other sea food.

Still drop in for a pint on match days now. See you soon.

DK another place in my learning

Ahh my old alma mater...sere it did teach me some things. Late 60's to early 70's although most of that time was spent trying to avoid going to school.  The teachers were just as bad, but there were a few good ones. Mr Moncrief was mine. Who was your fav?

born a hibee, die a hibee

Lived in Easter Road, played football in Norton Park and sometimes in the ground at night. Worked there as an apprentice electrician for a few years and was lucky to meet many of the Greats over breakfast and lunch. God bless them all...GGTTH
