George Waterston

sealing wax manufacturer

George Waterston's premises for manufacturing sealing wax, in the 1990s, were in a yard on the western side of Beaverhall Road, opposite Duncan's chocolate factory.  The building the two-storey building at the back of the yard in the centre of this picture.

Soon after I visited the Waterston's sealing wax works in 1994, the yard in this photo was converted to become a car pound to house cars removed from the streets of Edinburgh for being illegally parked.  The car pound has since moved to Leith, beside the docks.
