This photo is from the Edinburgh Street Lighting Collection of photos
held in the Edinburgh City Archive.
The photo of a lamp post knocked down outside the premises of:
- Hosiery Manufacturing Company Ltd (65a South Clerk St) and
- Abbey Buffet (65 South Clerk Street)
was taken for the Edinburgh Evening Dispatch on January 17, 1948.
Police are on duty at the scene, but it has not been cordoned off in
the way that it would be today (in 2011).
