Taylor Place

Thank you to David Elgin, who was born and brought up in Taylor Place, Abbeyhill,  for allowing me to reproduce the photograph above.  David wrote:


"The lamp post in the middle of this photo is outside No.4, Taylor Place, the house where I was born in 1939.

 I think this photo would have been taken in 1914 or so.  My mother, who was born in 1914,  is in the arms of my great-grandmother who is standing outside the doorway that has a sign above it.

I don't know the reason for the group photo.  Maybe, it was the start of the war."
