Lost Edinburgh stores and venues - your views online
What former Edinburgh buildings or businesses would you like to see restored?
Woolworths and the fish pond in the Museum in Chambers Street.
Woolies or What Every Woman Wants.
Not a shop but the Museum of Childhood
Jenners, but the way it was before it was taken over by House of Fraser.
Portobello outdoor swimming baths!
The St James Centre. It’s awful now, it was better before and that horrible blot on the landscape should have been approved by residents of Edinburgh. They have to look at it every day.
The beautiful Art Deco Odeon cinema. It should never have been allowed to get into disrepair.
Goldbergs. At the Edinburgh store there was a cafe on the top floor with a roof garden.
All the good clothes shops and department stores.
Gamestation, always just a little bit cheaper than GAME when I was a bairn.
Open airl Art Deco pool, which was in Porty. What a tragedy that we lost this.
The big John Menzies in Princes Street.
Gordon James Reid
The suburban railway lines; all of them.
Leith Waterworld as a pool again, not a grotty soft play!
The Marionville Bar.
The venue on Calton Road, it should have been listed.
As always, Studio 24.
Infirmary Street swimming pool and baths.
Murrayfield ice rink.
Bring back the Revolution night club on Lothian Road.
Fat Sam’s restaurant and the Disney Store!
C& A, Razzle Dazzle.
Woolworths, Disney store, Debenhams, BHS, Fopp, Leith Waterworld.
Any thing but a scottish tat shop....Edinburgh is an awful place to shop nowadays.
What Everyone Wants on South Bridge.
Jenners as it used to be. Lovely store and good for coffee or lunch. Miss it a lot.
Piper Alpha disaster
Steve Cardownie remembers the 167 victims of this horrific disaster 34 years on.
My dad was Frankie Miller …. gone but never forgotten. Can’t tell you how nice it was to read this wee memory of him from his friend Steve Cardownie. Thank you for sharing. My sister and I spent most of our childhood on the sidelines of football pitches watching our dad.
I was 14 and it was a sad day. Affected so many lives. I didn’t know them personally but there were locals killed in that disaster from back home and the mood in the community was of devastation which had a domino effect on everyone. Remembering those guys and their families torn.
My oldest was just a baby. One of the other mums in our group had a husband on a rig - we couldn't remember which one. Eventually we had the courage to ask her. Thankfully he was on another rig.
I was coming thru the Pentland Firth on a pipe laying barge when I picked up the news at 10pm on my Russian shortwave radio when it was in progress!
Remember it well as an engineer on the Heather Alpha and Brent 'Charlie' constructions.
Jimmy Scott, Edinburgh, Dean cemetery, RIP.
Remembering our dear friend Hugh Brackenridge, a regular in Peter Symons and the Crown Bar, Leith.
Jim Speirs RIP
I was just a boy in primary school when this happened, so sad.
