Embassy Cinema

Boswall Parkway

Around 1975

This photo was taken by Donald Grant, Penicuik, Midlothian, Scotland, on a colour transparency film.

  Donald Grant, Penicuik, Midlothian, Scotland:  I've converted the scan to monochrome to fit in with the other photos in this series.
I also felt that the detail on the buildings came across better on the monochrome image, rather than on a rather faded colour image.
