Easter Duddingston Lodge

"We have identified this photograph as the hallway of Easter Duddingston Lodge in Portobello, where Charles Jenner lived and Dougald Macdonald worked as his butler. 

There is a later picture of it as the Queen's View Hotel in a Stenlake book, and it still exists as offices for Church of Scotland Care Homes - Charis House.

[Charis House is at 47 Milton Road East]

We managed to visit the house earlier this year and it is still recognisable, although substantially changed.  The panelling and flooring survive."
