Scope and Content The former depot for the Northern Cable Tramway, Henderson Row, Stockbridge, Edinburgh The tram depot, at the east end of Henderson Row, was designed by William Hamilton Beattie in 1886 for the Northern Cable Tramway Company, one of several companies that operated a service of cable tramcars in Edinburgh. The depot has a broad vehicle entrance, supported by elaborate cast iron pilasters. It extended to the rear to provide a 'garage' for the tramcars, and to house the pulley system which operated the underground cables. The façade, stone cleaned and restored, was incorporated into a new building for the Scottish Life Assurance Company c.1992, who cleverly extended the front to include the site of the old wash house next door, and built an entire new office block behind.
