East Trinity Road

1909

Thank you to Archie Foley for allowing me to reproduce this old photograph of Main Street, Newhaven.

The caption on this photo reads:

"Gable between Pottinger's Tent and 82 Main Street
Gable in dispute  -  DG Court  -   7th June 1909"

This photo was taken at Main Street, Newhaven.  Pottinger's tenement is presumably the building on the left.  DG Court = Dean of Guild Court.

William McInnes

The two storey shop at 82 Main Street in this photo is:

'William McInnes,  Tea and Provision Store.'

There is an advert for 'Milkmaid Milk' on the shop wall

 

Another Photo

Here is another photograph of the same building, also taken in 1909.  This comes from the same photograph album.

The caption on the photo reads:

"Proposed widening at 82 Main St, Newhaven  -  September 1909"

These photos were 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.
