Friends or Family?

"I found this picture in family photo collection - haven't a clue who the people in it are but may be relatives or friends of the last generation of our family.

The photo seems to be of Braefoot garage Edinburgh - phone 42404.  I don't know much more about it."

1920s or 1930s?

There appears to be an antique petrol pump on the extreme left of this photo.

When might this photo have been taken?  The telephone number in the photo, Edinburgh 42404 is helpful in determining  the date. The photo may have been taken around the 1920s or 1930s, but I'll have to look at more Post Office Directories to to confirm this.

The Edinburgh & Leith Post Office Directories that I have looked at so far show:

-  1930:  Braefoot Motor Garage, Liberton, Phone 42404

-  1940:  Braefoot Motor Garage, Liberton, Phone 79202

-  1950:  Braefoot Motor Garage, Liberton, Phone 79202

-  1961:  Braefoot Motor Garage, Liberton Dams, Phone LIB 3201

-  1970:  not listed
