Here's another photo from the same collection. Maybe it's somewhere round wherever this is?

Could be Spylaw Road. The pillars both side look like they are in the right place and the iron fence on the right too, just before the junction. Looks slightly off, but I think that’s because it’s been taken from the left kerb, but google earth is in the middle of the road. There has been so many houses knocked down and others built on that road too.

 Christ I can't remember where I left my glasses, and you want me to remember that. From my brilliant powers of observation I would say its an MVA involving injury, the policeman walking to the scene could be a sergeant who as they did had a habit of attending when all the work was finished.🙂

Could be any of those, though Spylaw Rd looks more like it.

Either Bread Street or Fountainbridge, near the old St Cuthberts. My mother loved that old theatre as did I Johnny Victory, Lex Maclean and others.

Indirectly it was part of the reason I met my to be wife sixty two years ago. My Wednesday night polis friends had reasons none of them were going out that night. I as a result took my mother to the first house of the Palladium. After the show and we were going for the bus she said she would buy me a pint and she would go home herself. I had a pint went to the Cavendish the first people I saw were my no going out friends, I gave them a fairly obscene c haracter desc ription, saw a beautiful what I thought was an American girl with a beautiful tan, light colored hair with sun bleaced ends, I asked her for a dance and here we are sixty two years later, and she is still as beautiful to me as then..

I was speaking to an older chap last week and he was telling me there used to be a golf club in Cammo (closed down in the early 1920s I think he said). The clubhouse was in Cammo Road (recently knocked down and a rather splendid house built in it's place) and the course spread out behind it. It was the first time I'd heard anything about a club being there?

Further up.  That's Deacon Brodie's on the corner.

 

Edit: Maybe it isn't the other building don't look right.

I read it as The Black Swan, which was on the corner of Cockburn St and Royal Mile ?
