Just thought we’d share some highlights from the many memories that have appeared on Edinburgh Collected since its launch in April.
This fabulous shot captures the story of our summer so far –
‘From There to Here’ have added some simply spectacular photos of children playing on Wester Hailes’ ‘Venchies’, a series of wooden play structures. The pictures date back to sunnier summers of the late 70s and early 80s.
We’ve also been collecting memories of the Church Hill Theatre which will shortly be marking its 50th anniversary as a community theatre venue. This wonderful ensemble shot documents the cast of the first ever pantomime at the Church Hill Theatre back in December 1965.
Go back to school with Kathleen Glancy who’s shared her memories of her 1950s schooldays. She remembers how she covered her school books with brown paper, the school nurse’s visits and her prefect duties of bringing in the crates of milk and keeping the classroom coal fire burning!
And in celebration of Edinburgh’s Living Landscapes, there are some lovely pictures of floral meadows and natural grasslands that have sprung up around the city.
Contribute to the Living Landscape Photography competition and you could win a great prize and see your photo appearing on Edinburgh Collected!
