We haven't been "out foreign" for a while, so thought we might take a quick jaunt over to Edinburgh…


From what I can make out, these are the establishments:

Dickson's Refreshments at no. 10

The Black Bull Inn at no. 12

Mossman & Watson at no. 16?

Alexander Brownlee, Carriers Warehouse at no. 18

Gladstone Close at no. 20

G. Williamson at no. 22


Date: 1867-1870 (see tour de force research below from Rayonick!)
