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.

Thank you to John who added:

"There was still a fair distance to go up McDonald Road before reaching Leith Walk.  This picture was probably taken round about where the Martin & Frost furniture shop once was.

In the foreground, to the right, is the Territorial Army building, and on the left will be the fire station.

Macdonald Road Fire Station  -  October 2005

You can see the black metal railing on the left between the two trees that stop you walking out in front of the fire engines."
