That’s me only in Leith forty years (exactly, this weekend), and the Edinburgh Council invites me to do an online presentation of what made Leith so damn special in 1920 that they voted 6:1 against amalgamation. Believe me the hard bit was leaving out good content. See what you think:
Note that I’m careful in the last slide to say that if you ask another Leither you’ll get another cut through the history, another story. That’s history for you. It was good fun doing it.
And how has the Leith century since 1920 been for you? I think in the New Year I’ll be posting another presentation, and I’m planning on using the episode Trainspotting at Leith Central Station to hang it on. If you want to feed something in, let me know.
