Memories of Maritime Leith: Digital Stories

Four residents of Leith share their own accounts, memories and experiences of the city’s nautical history. Their insights into Edinburgh’s seafaring past are captured in the four short films below.

Memories of Maritime Leith is the result of a community learning project inspired by the Trinity House maritime collections.
