Engineers' Annual Outing to Newcastle

Thank you to David Ferguson (who incidentally has written several poems about growing up in Granton) for allowing me to reproduce this photograph of himself and other engineers from the United Wire Works Engineers' Social Club gathering, for their annual outing to Newcastle.

The Photo

"I think this photo of the United Wire Works engineers gathering for their annual outing to Newcastle would have been taken outside the works gates in West Granton Road, Edinburgh, around 1973.

In the picture from left to right are:

-  Pat McCormack

-  David Cartledge

-  Andrew White

-  Allan Brash

and myself, lighting up."
