Thank you to Eric Bower, Edinburgh, for providing the following additional information.  Eric wrote:

"JB Watson's Frederick Street shop closed around 1967 or '68.  Their Shandwick Place shop remained open until  the very early '70s  The company was owned by a family called Beddows and there was also a branch of that family called Steele. They were all directors."

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.
