Thank you to Andy Hall for sending me the photos above, that he got from two contacts.

Andy has also set up a web site giving the history of the trawlers that sailed from Granton.

Cosalt  -  1970s

"The photos are of the net making store of The Great Grimsby Cosalt and Tanning Co Ltd.  They had this yard to the rear of the bank at Granton Square.

The company also had a store / shop on the Middle Pier where the fisherman would buy  gloves, sea boots, mattresses, blankets and basically almost all items of clothing.

Andy Hall tells me that the lady sitting on the right in blue overalls in this photo is Miss Mary Bell and that the lady standing on the left in floral overalls is Mrs Jeannie Bell, both now deceased.
