Where is it?

This is one of a large collection of photos taken by Robert Blomfield  in Edinburgh between 1956 and 1967.  Robert's brother, John is in the process of scanning and cataloguing the photos.

He'd like to discover where this photo was taken.  If you recognise the location, please email me, then I'll pass on the news to John.

Thank you

Thank you to John Blomfield, who sent me the photos taken by his brother, Robert, for writing again and adding:

Stockbridge

Bedford Street

"It's been fascinating and very heartening to see the interest you, and others from all over, have shown in Robert's photos.  I'm keeping a close eye on your progress!

Robert lived in Hamilton Place, Stockbridge at the time that most of these photos were taken, so that fits in well with your findings so far.

The location of Bedford Street is quite conclusive for these two photos because of the buildings in the far background."

Bryan Gourlay below reached the same conclusion as John Blomfield reached in his 'Reply 1' above.

"Looking a the  buildings at the end of the street, and the parked car, suggests that photos 6 and 10 could be of the same street, Bedford Street:

"This is indeed Bedford Street, Stockkbridge, Edinburgh around 1965.

I am also sure that the little girl shown on the right of the photograph amongst a group of children is Sally Smith, whose rather large family lived in the street.

The photo was taken from the Dean Street end looking towards Bedford Crescent halfway along on the right."
