Thanks Rathbone, I’m really enjoying the ‘Oz series’ and I loved your reminisces about art collage and the clubs/music scene. My parents were both at art collage shortly before you and Toto played with my husband on many occasions, so it was fascinating to get a flavour of the times.

Not really a newbie but rather a returner. After 5 years living in foreign parts (Abbeyhill) I am back in Portobello (Although I don't think I ever left in spirit) Hurray! Nice to see some familiar names are still around!

Hello I'm a newbie to Talk Porty - signed up a couple of years ago and then lost my password. I've reactivated my account in order to find out about what's happening in Porty over the summer. I live with my hubbie and twin sons in Park Avenue and love Portobello! Vikki

Hi all

I am a newbie, only recently joined and so far my contribution has been about dog poo, and the vacant shops! I have lived in Mount Lodge Place for almost 2 years, and only recently found this site-but boy it is very interesting looking through some of the old posts. I have learned so much, so thank you all for your interesting contributions over the years :-)

Hi, I'm Charlotte and I'm moving to Portobello with my boyfriend in a month or two (I currently live in Clermiston and he lives at the edge of Newington). I fell in love with the place when I visited a few months ago, and managed to convince my boyfriend that we should move there ;) (Kidding, he wanted to too!) I'm probably just going to hang around and ask things, but will try and help when I can!

Hello, I am a newbie, and also new to message boards
I went to the old Portobello High School from 1956 to 1961 (I think)and I left Edinburgh in 1966.
I recently went to visit the old school, but it was no longer there. I was actually hoping to take a photo of it to recover a bit of my past, as I can't seem to remember musch of my time there. I think the classes were set as 1A1, 1A2, etc and we were all assigned to houses (Abercorn, Brunstane, Crichton, Duddingston) I was in Crichton.
If anybody could post a photo of the old school (both sides, Stanley Road and Duddingsto) I would be extremely grateful.
Also if there is anybody out there who was in the same year as me, let me know how you are

I live in Spain now, and try to visit porty every summer

Hi I'm Katy. I left Porty in the early 70s. I like to visit the site to see what's going on in my old home town. I try to visit when I can and still enjoy looking at the old haunts and walking along the prom. Miss the sea!!
