"I thought this photo which  took in 1969 might be of interest. 

I had it named 'Powderhall'.  Can you confirm whether it is or not?"

Reply to Terry

I cannot recall ever having seen any photos of Powderhall Station, so I don't know the answer to the question that Terry asks above. 

 Perhaps somebody else will be able to answer it.  Please email me if you know the answer.  Thank you.

Incidentally, I believe that Powderhall station opened in 1895 and was closed by 1917

"Yes, is definitely Powderhall. The Water of Leith bridge is at the far end of the platforms, and Bonnington South Junction signal box just beyond."
