Dates

The lists have been compiled mainly from the Edinburgh & Leith Trade Directories.  Many of the companies may in fact have been in business for longer.

Where I have found additional information (e.g. from adverts in Transactions of the EPS) I have included it. 

I will also include some details of some more companies that have been in busiess more recently in Edinburgh.
