About this memory
Cultins Road ran from the Canal Bridge on the old Calder Road towards Turnhouse and the Maybury.
In the 1950s, when this photo was taken, it was a narrow steep hill bordered by trees and fields.
It was also known locally as the German or “Jerry” road due to its close proximity to the Prisoner of War Camp near by.
For several years it was a favourite spot for Travellers to camp near.
The train is being pulled by “The Queen of Scots” making its way into Edinburgh
Thanks to David McMillan for use of his photo.
