Artist's Description

Taken from the Sandport Place Bridge, the Water of Leith close to its end before it empties into the Firth of Forth at Leith, Edinburgh, Scotland.

On the left is Ronaldson’s Wharf and on the right is The Shore.

The Shore was the original Port of Leith which serviced the city of Edinburgh. A pier was later built to the north in the late 1700s.

Tall masted sailing ships berthed at the Shore, while scores of crewmen loaded fish, coal, grain and hides for export to Northern Europe and the Mediterranean. Ships returned with wine, fruit, spices and cloth.

As ships grew too large for this shallow river mouth the harbour was moved north but the buildings on the Shore still show evidence of the old port.
