Goldberg’s Department Store

Goldberg’s Department Store opened in 1960 at High Riggs Edinburgh. It was a modernist building in design, intended to be the focal point in a new road system for Tollcross, but the redevelopment was not realised. An imposing five floor building,
copper sculptures flanked either side of the entrance, whilst the roof garden with restaurant and menagerie seemed to be the highlight of recollections of visits to the store. Goldberg’s finally closed and was demolished in 1996. Bank of Scotland Offices now occupy the site.
