St Leonard's Church and
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,
photo is of St
Leonard's Church of Scotland church. I believe it
is now a Catholic Church. The original war memorial for St Leonard's
in now in my Church, Mayfield Salisbury.
Nelsons Works is also visible in this image."
