Leith & Edinburgh North

Since I live in Leith, I’ve rather a lot of pieces which feature the port’s architectural heritage. The commerce which passed through the Port of Leith is writ large in the wealth which constructed so much of what stands around me.


Even today, it’s pretty damn impressive – if you take a proper look at the Port of Leith. Although, as I look at reports from the residents of Venice regarding cruise liners and mass tourism, I worry the beauty might be sacrificed for money.

From that, comes a feeling I’m almost obliged to carry my battered camera around Leith. Photograph The Peoples’ Republic before a big-enough bung sees it bulldozed.
