Welcome to the Auld Reekie Retold Podcast from Museums & Galleries Edinburgh. This is our fifth episode and today you’ll hear from Suzy Murray from the team working on the Auld Reekie Retold project. Suzy is going on an adventure to Leith today, and you can join her! Follow along on Our Town Stories using the interactive map to see the route and all the images she's discussing. The walk will start up at the Victoria Bridge and take you down to Elm Row. On the way Suzy will discuss photographs and photographic studios which help tell the story of Leith Walk and the surrounding areas. We have been creating the podcast from home, so please excuse any inconsistencies in the audio.

Auld Reekie Retold is a major three year project which connects objects, stories and people using Museums & Galleries Edinburgh’s collection of over 200,000 objects. Funded by the City of Edinburgh Council and Museums Galleries Scotland, the project brings together temporary Collections Assistants and permanent staff from across our venues. The Auld Reekie Retold team are recording and researching our objects, then showcasing their stories through online engagement with the public. We hope to spark conversations about our amazing collections and their hidden histories, gathering new insights for future exhibitions and events.
