Thank you to Neil Lawrence for sending me the map above, showing where the hutments were situated at Albert Street Edinburgh.  These were wooden houses, built around 1920-21, following the end of World War I.

Thank you to Gordon Aitchison who wrote:

Shop at No.79

"My maternal Grandmother had a shop at No.79 Albert street.  My cousin believes that Nos. 77 to 81 were knocked down, maybe in the early-1970s.

Do you know of anyone who may have any information about these buildings?  I'd love it if someone had a photoof them."
