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.
