55 - Walking down Dean Path


About this memory

1955 - Pictured in the middle of the photo is a metal shop advertising sign attached to Christine Robertson's Newsagent Shop Dean Path.

When I was 13 years old I delivered round the Dean Village the Evening News for Christine Robertson.

There is a gap here in the photo (which is not very clear) between the 2 tenement's. This led you down the Broad Steps, as the next photo of the Broad Steps highlights.

These tenements looking down Dean Path as far as the Convening Court tenement, were all demolished in the 1960s. The Convening Court tenement outer walls were all retained, but the inside was later gutted and refurbished in the 1970s.
