Thank you to Forbes Wilson, now living
near Guildford, Surrey, for giving the following detailed
description of where this photo was taken.
Gilmerton Main Street
"The past few days have been a real
trip down memory lane, and again I instantly recognised this
photograph. The photographer is standing in the middle of the old
Gilmerton Main Street, now called Ravenscroft Street. He is about 20
metres from the intersection with Drum Street.
On the immediate right of the
photograph is the wide, recessed entrance to Gilmerton Church formed
by the lamps on each of the two pillars. I recall as part of the
143rd Gilmerton scout group being down there at the war memorial
each Remembrance Sunday.
Further up the Street
The Church Hall, where we used to
meet, each Thursday evening, is approximately 100 metres further up
on the right hand side.
On the left and almost opposite the
car, is the entrance to Ravenscroft Gardens and just beyond the
pedestrians on the right hand side, is the entrance to Hawthorn
