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

Can anybody tell me anything about the buildings in this photo?  The  building on the extreme right is Granton Gas Works Station.

The works was a joint undertaking by the two burghs and the opening ceremony was organised so that both Provosts, and their wives, had a role to play."
