Bankhead [Tram]

An Airport-bound tram captured between Bankhead and Edinburgh Park Station on 17 March 2020. The EGML is behind it. A book on Edinburgh Street names posits that the name Bankhead comes from the railway embankment here. This seems a bit unlikely, but it is true that the name is younger than the line, having been coined for streets in a post-war industrial estate (situated on a bank).
