Local history of Portobello, including an archive of Portobello postcards through the years

Portobello's Public Parks

Postby Bob Jefferson » 02 Dec 2006, 13:58

I have found around 200 references to Portobello's public parks in the Scotsman digital archive. I restricted my searches to Abercorn Park, Brighton Park, Figgate Park, Joppa Quarry, Portobello Park and Rosefield Park. Many other references that I had hoped to incorporate from other sources were lost when I attempted to transfer data between computers.

So don't expect a rathbone-scale magnus opus but just a few interesting facts I have been able to find. If anyone has amendments, corrections or further information please get in touch.

As with rathbone's 'On The Beach' project, I will be publishing in bite-size chunks and in chronological order.

The golfers still weren't happy about not being able to play on Saturday afternoons and raised a petition but the Public Parks Committee stuck by their decision, despite the protestations of Councillors Kellock and Innes, in order to allow young boys to play their games of football in safety.

In 1900 the annual brass band contest in Brighton Park was attended by over 2000 people. Carron Works were, on this occasion, beaten into second place by Musselburgh and Fisherrow Trades Band, who also walked off with the medals for trombone playing.
