Jim O'Meara

Thank you to Jim O'Meara, one of many people who have contributed to the Dumbiedykes recollections pages on this web site, for providing this photograph of himself with his Lambretta scooter.

This photo was taken in the early-1960s in St Andrew Square, Edinburgh.  The buildings in the background are at the east end of George Street.  They are:

LEFT:  Caledonian Insurance's Head Office.  Following a takeover, this became Guardian Royal Exchange's office.

RIGHT: Standard Life Assurance Company Head Office, later to become the Head Office of Standard Life Investments when SLAC moved its HO to Lothian Road.
