Broughton Place

Which Outing?

Here is a group of ladies and two children at Dean Street, Stockbridge.  Who is the man at the lamp post.  Might he be the coach driver?

Thank you to Nigel Baxter for allowing me to reproduce:

a)   the photo above, taken at Broughton Place, Edinburgh

b)   other photos of church outings, taken in the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s.

These photos come from medium format negatives that Nigel acquired as a 'job lot' in an auction following a house clearance.

Nigel is trying to discover who the photographer might have been and which groups are in the photos..

Thank you to Fraser Parkinson who wrote:

"I'm speculating that the group may have been connected to the building out of view to the left hand side of the photograph:

-  The building was originally built as a Non-Conformist Church in the 1820ís

-  The property subsequently became a silent movie cinema

-  It then an office for the National Trust for Scotland.

-  I'm unsure what its use was when the photo of the coach outing was taken. 

However, a connection to that building would seem to be a possible reason for a group gathering for a coach outing in Dean Street at this time.

 I'll try to find out further details about the use of the building about this time."
