"I remember that day well, as it was my 17th birthday.  Also around that time:

Gordon Richards won his only Derby.

Stanley Matthews won his only FA Cup Medal.

Hilary climbed Everest."

Thank you to Neil Lawrence for replying.

Location

"Here are possible locations for this photo.  The house appears to be  a Standard Council House, type 8, with a double and single window and a similar entrance door. These properties were built at Stenhouse and Niddrie."

Neil also sent me a 'Google Street View' photo of a similar house at 41 Stenhouse Avenue West.

"I'm sure that the photos of this large group and of the six cooks below were both taken somewhere in the Stenhouse area."
