Postcard

Thank you to William Mearns, Church Manager, Mayfield Salisbury Parish Church, Edinburgh, for allowing me to reproduce this postcard of St Leonard's Church, at the junction of Dalkeith Road and Lutton Place.

Lutton Place is the road leading out of the picture to the right, above.

This postcard is published by McGregor of Newington in their 'Newington Series'.  It has a divided back so must have been published in 1902 or later. It was sent through the post on December 6, 1904.

Nelson's Printing Works

Nelson's printing works stood on the east side of Dalkeith Road immediately to the north of where the Royal Commonwealth Pool now stands, close to one of the entrances to Holyrood Park.

Nelson's works were demolished and offices for Scottish Widows Fund and Life Assurance Head Office was built on the site in 1972.
