North  British Distillery

1993

This is one of the photos I took as part of a project to document people at work in and around Edinburgh.

The bonded warehouse here was in Westfield Road, close to the end of Edinburgh's Western Approach Road, near Murrayfield Stadium.  It has since been demolished.

Here is the same photo displayed in sepia tone:

Both the black and white and sepia images above were taken from a colour slide that had very little colour on it.

Zoom-in

Here is a slide with rather more colour, taken three days later, zooming-in to one of the staircases.

Recollections

from George T Smith

Nanaimo, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada

Thank you to George T Smith, Canada, who wrote:

Bonded Warehouses

"The bonded warehouses on the old tram depot site brought home to me how old I am.

I was working at NB when these monsters were being built, (about 1956 or 57?) now these  premises are demolished!"
