Gosman's Fruitier shop can be seen on the extreme left of the
photo on this postcard, at 2 Montagu Terrace. Before moving
to 2 Montagu Terrace, Gosman's was in the same street, but just
over a hundred yards further to
the south the same street, near the corner of Goldenacre Terrace.
According to old editions of the Edinburgh & Leith Post Office
- Gosman's was at 27 Montagu Terrace in 1920, possibly
- The shop moved to 25 Montagu Terrace in 1922.
- It moved again, to 2 Montagu Terrace in 1926, and
remained there until the 1970s or later.
So the photograph above must have been taken in 1926 or later.
This series of postcards includes views of houses in the Boswall
estate. They look to me to be fairly new at the time the
photos were taken.
So, I suggest that the photos in this series would probably
have been taken in the late 1920s.
