We are having a 1-day ‘History of North Edinburgh’ event, an exhibition of things, film and photos in the former office of the Madelvic electric car company on Saturday 24th October between 11:00am to 3:00pm.

The theme is the industry and workplaces of North Edinburgh.

Did any members of your family work in the Madelvic factory all those years ago? Or more recently in Parsons Peebles; the Wire Works; Salvesen’s; the Gas Works; Trawling; Whaling; Fish merchants; Trams; or other industry in North Edinburgh? Men’s and women’s work of course.

We need you! We are looking for copies of any photos, stories, memories, artefacts, and interesting things to share in an exhibition. We are hopeful that this will go on to create a permanent museum of North Edinburgh.

If you have anything you could contribute to this please contact
