It looked sunny enough for a drink after work down at what used to be the Waterfront in Leith. Bit in reality it is has turned a tad chilly again.

  2. Oh ye gentle folk.... In the 1970's the area was, lets say, a little bit more nervy than today. "The Jungle" was the nick-name for the King's Wark. Long before it's gastro pub days. Back then your knife skills meant something different

  3. I remember the KW being like that in the early 80's. The Waterfront fairly civilised by then I think.

  4. Yes - I'm talking about early 70's. Actually Leith wasn't so nasty really. Certainly some dodgy elements - tough, but honest would be accurate. It was the Edinburgh gangs that were the troublemakers in those days. Mental Drylaw, Gorgie Boot Boys et. al.
