*Open in New Window
Mumford's Geggie

This postcard shows the buildings on Greendyke Street at the corner of Saltmarket c 1902. From 1834 until 1877 Mumford's Theatre (better known as Mumford's Geggie) occupied the wooden building that became John Cornin's new and second-hand clothing store.

The building was demolished shortly after this photograph was taken in 1902, as part of the City Improvement Trust's slum clearance programme.
