These buildings were demolished in 1914.

Next time I'm in the area with my camera, I'll have a look to see what's there now.

This is one of a series of photos posted onto boards in an old album that Archie Foley acquired a few years ago.  Archie believes that these are likely to be official photos that probably once belonged to Leith City Council.
