Anchor gentrification

Anchor gentrification

About this memory

“They have torn it all down, or moved it without telling us where to. There are no memories left of the old shipping days in the Docks. Why has this great anchor been put here, outside these flats? It means nothing to the people staying in these flats. The anchor doesnae belong here. It should be in a museum of Leith
