Pickfords Load passing through Stockbridge


Here, a 48-ton boiler is being transported through Stockbridge on its way to Leith Docks.  Where has it come from, and what is its final destination?

This photo was taken on May 19, 1964, as the load made its way up North West Circus Place, past the western end of St Stephen Street. 


The photo below was taken three years later, when another large load, a transformer from Parsons Peebles, made its way through Stockbridge.
