Corstorphine – A Pictorial History


Corstorphine – A Pictorial History of a Midlothian Village




Written by W G Dey.  Corstorphine tells the fascinating tale of a rural community.  


Until its annexation by the City of Edinburgh in 1920, Corstorphine village had an independence and character of its own and it is these qualities that W G Dey captures so successfully n this photographic memoir on behalf of the Corstorphine Trust.


From the Friendly Society of 1789, to nineteenth century quoits and the first horse drawn bus of 1881, the past is brought to life with the sensitivity and imagination that only a local man can bring.  Indeed, it is the vitality of the Corstorphine people, captured on film as they go about their daily lives that will be the abiding memory of this book.
