Edinburgh's Reminiscence Project • Established 1986


The city image: memories of Edinburgh streets

'In October 2000 I was given an Age Concern Millennium Award for a reminiscence project in Edinburgh. Three inner-city areas, all experiencing substantial changes to their identity were selected for the project: Gorgie/Dalry, Easter Road and the Southside. Against this backdrop of change, I wanted to record something of people's memories, feelings and aspirations. It was to involve both older and younger people. The finished work, presented in the form of maps, presented in the form of maps, attempts to tell a story about the three communities. These maps will be exhibited at various city venues together with this accompanying publication.' (David Langridge, November 2001)

The book is available to download here (PDF, 77 MB).
