Question

Restoration

Here is a photograph, taken in 2003, of the old fire station at Angle Park Terrace undergoing restoration  -  to what?

Answer

Thank you to Stephen, Munich, Germany who wrote:

"The fire station is now a Scotmid Funeral Home (and has been for a couple of years). My sister lives just along the road"

Location

This building is the south side of Angle Park Terrace.  The street is close to the western end of the Western Approach Road at Gorgie.

The Western Approach Road follows the track of the old railway track to Lothian Road, passing close to the new multi-cinema complex at Fountainbridge and the Edinburgh Conference Centre at The Exchange.

Across the Road

Across the road from the old fire station (above) is No 20, the home where the Edinburgh professional photographer and bagpipe maker lived from 1893 to 1907.
