are from a large batch believed to have:
once belonged to Leith Town Council,
thrown out some time in the 1920s
following the amalgamation of Edinburgh and Leith,
- been rescued and kept
privately in Scotland for 20 years,
- been taken to New Zealand by
Jack Steel when he emigrated,
- been returned to John Stewart,
Scotland by Jack's daughter, Heather. John Stewart is author of the
Old Leither web site.
Thank you to John for allowing me to reproduce these photos, and to all
others involved in the chain above.
