'From Steam to Diesel'
This exhibition features photos from negatives
found by Archie Foley in an old biscuit tin at the 'Portobello
Golden Days' Festival in 2003.
Archie bought the negatives, had some printed and
has been trying to discover who took the original photos. It appears
to have been a railwayman, during the 1950s and 1960s.
This may well be the photographer:

I added several of these photos to the EdinPhoto
web site soon after Archie had printed them. I asked:
Q1: Where might these photos have been
Q2: Are the names of any of the railway
workers in the photos known?
Q1: Who might the photographer have been?
I got an answer to Q1 for most of the photos, and
to Q2 for some of the photos. I did not get any answer to Q3.
Here are the photos that I asked about.
