Capital Collections


For anyone who loves historic photographs or is interested in the history of Edinburgh, the Capital Collections website is an amazing resource. It is run by Edinburgh Libraries and Edinburgh Museums & Galleries. Now it has been updated and is even better!


I thought I would share some of my favourite Newhaven fishwife images as I’m thinking about the redevelopment of the Wee Museum of Newhaven, but there is much much more online.


About edinburghmuseumsoutreach

I'm the Outreach & Access Manager at Edinburgh Museums & Galleries (the museums service of the City of Edinburgh Council). I take the museums out to community groups and schools. I really enjoy meeting lots of people of different ages and backgrounds and helping them connect with our collections. I love showing people some of the amazing objects that we hold and I like helping them to remember the past or to create something amazing.
