Roberta posted a message in
the EdinPhoto guestbook, asking what he described as a long shot, going
back to 1954:
remember my mum. Nora Graham? She worked in what she refers to
as 'the rubber mill' in 1954.
She would have been
about age 21 at the time.
She lived at 6 Hay
Drive, Niddrie. She had three brothers:
- Jimmy Graham,
- George Graham

I can recall
that the company I was working for were using oxyacetylene cutters
to cut pipework out from the ceiling of the rubber mill.
At this stage, I'll say the company
I was working for was NOT responsible for the fire.
There were also
involved in doing similar work. If
there are any more photos out there I'd
love to view them.
I had a bit of a fright when the mill
went up. We all got out safe and
sound and I am sure nobody was injured. I
went back a few days later to see if I could salvage any of my tools
but to no avail. All that was left
of my ex-Army working
jacket that I had taken of and left on a hook was the zip!"
