One of the driving forces behind the campaign for a Leith Museum, Steve Mitchell, died on 29 November after a battle with cancer. Steve was an enthusiastic advocate of Leith history and culture in all its forms. As well as his support for a Leith Museum, he was a member of the Leith Local History Society, and had also been the main organiser for the exhibition of the ‘Rolls of Honour’ for the fallen of Leith in world war. He had also been active in the Leith Festival. Our condolences go to his wife, his children, and his family.
