We’ve taken a look a back in our photo archives to the swinging sixties, discovering what life was like for people living and working in Edinburgh in the 1960s.
Our archive had photos from all walks of life in the Capital, from sport to royalty, from pop stars to protests, and from street life to keeping your car clean, showing that Edinburgh really was swinging that decade.
