Newly Opened Gas Works

This is one of a series of photos of Granton Gas Works taken at the time of the official opening of the gas works in 1903

This photo gives an idea of both the scale and the quality of the work done to create Granton Gas Works.

Glass Plates

This photo was printed by Edinburgh Photographic Society Member, Gordon Rankin, from a wholeplate (8.5" x 6.5") glass plate.

This is one of many glass plates, most dating from around the 1960s, given recently  to Gordon.  The donor did not know the source of these plates or who the photographer might have been.
