Aerial View of Granton Harbour

Thank you to Walter Lyle Hume, Cowes, Isle of Wight  for sending me the aerial view of Granton Harbour above.  This view clearly shows both:

-  Granton Ice Company building  (centre of photo, upper building).

-  Dinwoodie's Rigging Loft (centre of photo, lower building).

"If they hadn't pulled the old place apart, it would be easy to say which was which.

The Ice House was on the West side of Middle Pier, close to edge of Quay, nearly but not quite opposite the building occupied by Dinwoodies Rigging Loft on the East side of Middle Pier.  They had only been there since early 1950s.

This photograph clearly shows both buildings.

Lighthouse ship 'Pharos' is still at her original berth which must date the photo to about the early 1970's as it moved to Leith soon after that time.
