Crivvens! "The Jungle" has certainly changed since my days........
"The Jungle"? Pray enlighten me.
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
I remember the KW being like that in the early 80's. The Waterfront fairly civilised by then I think.
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.
