Comely Bank, Edinburgh

Thank you to Bill Cockburn, Comely Bank Edinburgh for sending the message below.

Bill wrote:

Homes

"I lived at 132 The Pleasance from approx. 1944.  I then stayed at 16 Prince Albert Buildings from 1955 until I got married in 1963.

How thrilled I was to see a picture of Prince Albert Buildings which actually shows the house that I stayed in.

I share a lot of the recollections on the web pages, and can supply additional information."

Friends

My friends from The Pleasance / Salisbury Street include Alan Duff of 7 Salisbury Street, and James Linton of 120 The Pleasance, whose father owned the carpenter's shop at the same address.

 I would also like to hear from anyone who knew me from the above addresses.

Bill Cockburn, Comely Bank, Edinburgh:  May 9, 2007

If you'd like to contact Bill, please e-mail me and I will pass your message on to him.

Bill only found the EdinPhoto web site a couple of weeks ago, but has already begun to send me additional information.  See the pages listed against Bill Cockburn in the list of contributors.  Thank you Bill.

Thank you to Iain Peebles, Bloomsbury, London who wrote:

Prince Albert Buildings

"I was very interested to see the photographs of Prince Albert Buildings, Dumbiedykes. My great great grandfather, James Cameron and his family lived at 114 Prince Albert Buildings from about 1865 until 1870."

Canongate

"He ran a house painting business from premises at 214 Canongate. The business was continued by his son, also James Cameron, who died in 1954.

The shop would have been demolished not long after that when so much of the Canongate was redeveloped, but I've often wondered if it might have been captured in any old photographs."

Iain Peebles, Bloomsbury, London:  June 21, 2007

Photographs

If you know of any old photos that show James Cameron's shop in the Canongate, please e-mail me and I'll pass on the news to Iain.

Thank you.    -  Peter Stubbs:  June 26, 2007

The large photograph above was one of several dozen taken in 1959 by Adam H Malcolm in the Dumbiedykes area of Edinburgh.  These photographs were taken shortly before the houses were demolished.  Adam H Malcolm donated these photographs to the Edinburgh City Libraries in the 1960s and they can now be found in the Library's Edinburgh Room Collection.
