About this memory

John Codona.

“John Codona, one-man band, leading the local children along the Dumbiedykes. A well-known Edinburgh character. This shows the steps leading down through the greens to the road. Luckily not many cars in those days, as children were apt to run straight into the road.” – Jean Bell (née Bottomley)
