Synopsis
This fascinating collection of over 200 images provides a pictorial history of Portobello, famous as a seaside holiday resort, and the adjoining parish of Duddingston, which still maintains its rural village life centred around the church and the loch, despite the advance of suburbia. The images selected provide a glimpse into the diversity of Portobello and Duddingston, reflecting the importance of both the tourist trade - attracted by the sands, swimming pool and funfairs - and of industry, such as pottery and the manufacture of glass bottles. Other themes are also explored, paying particular attention to the people and places who have shaped the history these independently minded communities. The result is a volume, which will delight anyone who has lived, worked or visited Portobello or Duddingston.
