Edinburgh Direct Aid Yard  -  Graffiti and Fork Lift Truck

The yard and warehouse are at16a West Harbour Road, Granton.

Does anybody know who painted the pictures on the walls and when?

Reply:  Thank you to Ian McHaffie for telling me that the paintings were done by graffiti artists
during a fund -raising day at the warehouse, on June 13, 2010.  A poster for this event advertised:

"Home Baking, bric-a-brac, book sale, Art Sale (Scottish artists), 'Graffiti Art Live'
Edinburgh Direct Art currently helps in Gaza, Bosnia, Palestine, Pakistan and Kenya"
