Thank you to Al Lorentzen for allowing me to reproduce the top photograph above, taken in 1971 in Gorgie Road, across the road from Hearts FC stadium.

The entrance at 101 Gorgie Road with the red signage, on the extreme left of this photo,  was to:

Reid & MacKay Ltd.

Coach Hirers

Al describes this photo as:

"St. Cuthbert milk delivery on a dismal morning in 'Auld Reekie'."
