He is also the grandson of Alison Geissler. “My gran lived until 103 and was a proud Leither all her life. I have so many happy childhood memories of her and her house on Dudley Avenue. She passed away almost a decade ago and we all still miss her, but having a street named after her is an extraordinary honor, and in a way, it helps her live on.”

Geissler Drive, the new street near the Shore was named after Alison Geissler. She grew up in the area and was awarded an MBE for her services to glass engraving in 1991, and the Chairman’s Medal of the Edinburgh College of Art, at the age of 101.

Alison studied at the Edinburgh College of Art from 1925 until 1930 and continued her glass engraving career until the age of 94. One of her most notable pieces of work, a set of engraved goblets representing ten of the Queen’s Beasts, was presented to the Queen for her coronation in 1953.
