Old Photo

Thank you to John Stirling for allowing me to reproduce this photo.  The photo is taken from a collection of lantern slides that John rescued from being destroyed in 1974.  The photographer is not known.

Some of the other slides from this series are known to have been taken between about 1910 and 1920.

When and Where?

If you can suggest when and where this photo might have been taken, please email me.

Maybe somebody will recognise the bowling green or some of the bowlers, or the houses behind, or the flag in this photo that appears to have been taken at the same bowling green:

Craigmillar Park Bowling Club

"There was a good clue in the flag.  These photos are of Craigmillar Park Bowling Club, Edinburgh.

The houses in the background are in Gilmore Road.

In the men's picture, the house with the ivy is 41 Gilmour Road.

In the ladies' picture, the house with the ivy is 47 Gilmour Road."
