The map shows places mentioned in narratives or on photos.
The first two farms belonged to the Douglas and Miller families
Helen, Mary and John Miller attended the School as did John Douglas.
There was also a German man called Ulrich whom people remember.
The road to the was Duck pond road and led to the Whitelaw Stables.
After the Railway was the Kings farm .Ann King was in my Class at Wester Hailes Primary.

Owing to copyright issues, I am unable to show Aerial Photos taken in the 40s and 50s which would have given a clearer impression.
