Hello. I've just been looking at a picture of the canal and houses at Boat Road, Barnton. The photo was taken in the very early '50's and I was thinking what a lovely-looking 'canal village' it looked - something that would be a tourist attraction or a film-set location if the houses had been allowed to remain! It seems that all (or nearly all) of the houses were pulled down about 1953. Does anyone know why all this happened? Thanks, Paul Watkin ex- Grange Avenue, Barnton.
