Interesting features on this map

Features shown on this map include Caroline Park House, fortunately still standing and restored some years ago following use as the offices of A B Fleming.

Also shown on the map is the Caledonian Railway including the branch of the original Granton line, dating from 1861, and the Leith branch, built in 1864.

The area at the south west corner of the map – farmland at the time the map was drawn – was used within a few years for construction of Granton Gas Works – see also the map to the immediate west of this one.
