Originally built for the Industrial Exhibition of 1922, the Category B-listed building was purchased in 1926 to become the home of Edinburgh Corporation Transport’s bus fleet. The garage was extended in 1933 and again in 1963. By the mid-1960’s the garage was home to 242 buses and the company also had satellite garages at Longstone, Portobello, Tollcross and Leith. Of particular interest is the building’s roof dome and bus wash. Today the building is the head office of Lothian Buses, housing over 200 buses and 700 staff.
