Answer

Thank you to Neil Lawrence, Fountainbridge, Edinburgh, who wrote:

Dumbiedykes Road

"Here is another one that you can cross off the list

The number above the door was the give-away here.  There were only about 6 street in Edinburgh that went up and past number 133.  Two were in the south side, Dumbiedykes Road and Causewayside a quick look at the old maps and it turns out to be Dumbiedykes Road."

Neil also sent me a copy of an old large-scale map, showing that No 133, the house on the right in the photograph above, is on the east side of Dumbiedykes Road between Brown Street and Carnegie Street.

Also in this section of the road, a little further south, there was a pub at No 143.
