130 Constitution Street

When these photos were taken, Drysdale's workers had just moved into 130 Constitution Street to work beside the Brodie Hamilton Melrose workers, following a takeover.

I believe that each company then may have had about eight workers.

Coffee Roasting

Ralph Lutton, Brodies, told me that some of the equipment at Constitution Street was even older that that he had been using at Grove Street, Fountainbridge.  A lot of this oldest equipment had been thrown at the end of 1991.

However, Drysdale's coffee roaster which was water cooled and could roast 100kg of coffee in 10 minutes would not fit into the Constitution Street premises, so two smaller roasters were  being used.  These could roast 25kg and 10kg of coffee in 20-25 minutes.  They were air cooled.

 

Tea and Coffee

I visited this company several times as part of my project photographing people at work in Edinburgh in the 1990s.

Drysdale

Drysdale was founded in 1878.

When I took these photos in 1991, the company was based at Grove Street, Fountainbridge  -  but not for much longer!

 Brodie, Hamilton, Melrose

Brodie Hamilton Melrose was, an old-established Leith Company.

On November 1, 1991, following a take-over, the workforce from Drysdale  joined the Brodie, Hamilton, Melrose workers, to work from their premises at 130 Constitution Street, Leith, until new premises could be acquired.

Brodies

The company moved to new premises in Dock Street, Leith, around 1994 and traded 'Brodies'.

The company moved again in July 2002 to Newhailes Industrial Estate, Musselburgh, about five miles to the east of the centre of Edinburgh.  I've not yet taken any photos there.

Brodie's premises in Dock Street have now been demolished and new apartments have been built on the site.

The company is still trading as Brodies.
