Croan's Kippers

History

Croan & Sons had a large low kipper factory, close to Newhaven Fishmarket,  where they smoked kippers in ovens, using a fire of oak sawdust.

The factory moved in the mid-1990s, further west along the coast to West Shore Road, Granton.

In early 2008, the company moved again.

Kippers

Some kippers were hung on hooks on trolleys before being smoked in the ovens.
