A Family in Leith

I just discovered this site and have been in Leith a couple of times looking for places my gggrandfather lived. My gggrandfather was a James Wallace who lived at 4 Junction Street and according to the 1841 census, had 9 children.There are no signs of the family in leith after 1844. He was in the bakery business and apparently some of his sons joined him in the business.

I am looking for old photos which may show that part of Leith on the 1800’s or any Wallace connection which may still be in that area though the family seemed to have emigrated to either Canada or America as I found, Can anyone help?

(Can I mention that the above message came from my other website at
