This view looks to the south up Bellvue Road towards Bellvue School, now Drummond Community High School.

The horse in the picture is 'Ginger', 24 years old and about to be retired.  The man in the donkey jacket is Brian McVey

This photograph was taken on January 26, 1985, the last day that St Cuthbert's used horse-drawn floats to deliver milk in Edinburgh, after 125 years of operation.

"I saw this picture and thought I'd let you know that the milkman on the right was James Hume, originally from Balfour Street, Leith.  He was my Mumís cousin, my second cousin.

Sadly, James died this year but I remember him well."
