About this Resource
Our Town Stories is a fun and interactive website that brings Edinburgh's history to life using material from the heritage collections of Edinburgh Libraries.
Explore the city's past through images, maps and stories from our collections. Browse the wonderful ‘Then and Now’ images and historical maps and read our bite-size stories that tell the history of Edinburgh’s people, places and city life. Stories are diverse and include: a history of firefighting; a pictorial trail of Greyfriars Bobby; an overview of Edinburgh’s Orphan Hospitals and Schools; and the story of Bessie Watson, a nine year old Suffragette.
