"Here, King George VI and Queen Elizabeth are driving up Craighall Road.  Craighall Crescent is on the left."

Spectators can be seen on the pavement between the two cars, and waving from the windows and balcony.  The shop on the corner of Craighall road and Craighall Crescent is Laurence Smith, grocer and wine merchant.
