Old Photo

Thank you to John Stirling for allowing me to reproduce this photo.  The photo is taken from a collection of glass plates that John rescued from being destroyed in 1974.  The photographer is not known.

St Patrick Square

The names of the shops in this photograph help this location to be identified.  The Edinburgh & Leith Post Office Directory for 1930-31 gives the following addresses:

-  1 St Patrick Square:  John Wright, Draper

-  2 St Patrick Square:  James F Dewar

-  3 St Patrick Square:  Thomas B Doig

The 1930-31 directory is the earliest directory that I have, but the photo was probably taken some time earlier, so by consulting directories for earlier years it may be possible to identify more of the shops, and to estimate the date of this photo.
