These days, Morningside is a bustling district of Edinburgh, packed with popular landmarks, independent shops, bars and restaurants.
A former village serving several farms and estates in the area, in the 19th century it developed as a residential suburb, thanks to the advent of a railway service and other transport improvements.
Morningside is now a local government ward with a population of around 33,000 people living in a mixture of villas, tenement flats and more modern housing – all centred around the main shopping street of Morningside Road.
