The Photo

Here is a photograph of a street party in Corunna Place, taken in 1953.   Corunna Place is near the eastern end of Bonnington Road, close to Great Junction Street.

Lee Patterson who provided this photo wrote:

"My father, John Patterson, is the boy standing against the wall on the left.

My grandfather, Arthur, a news vendor on Leith Walk, is holding forth at the table.

Does anybody recognises anyone else in the photo."

Lee Patterson

Do you recognise anybody?

If you recognise anyone please email me then I'll pass your message on to Lee.

Thank you    - Peter Stubbs:  January 25, 2008
