New homes for Leithers?

July 2016

About this memory

"There were several flats on my landing. And there was only the one toilet per floor, and all the families shared it. But those houses had to be knocked down it was decided. So people were moved. Far out to the outskirts, away to Muirhouse for example. People waited for the houses to be built so they could go back to Leith. They thought they would get to return. Get their houses back. But that never happened. They put others in those new houses.

When they moved the Leithers, they ripped the heart out of Leith."
