Thank you to Barry Potter for sending me an old photo of Corstorphine.  I corresponded by email with Barry about this photo and was amused to see where the conversation took us.

See below.

Barry Potter sent me an old photo of St John's Road, Corstorphine, and an email saying:

"I thought you might like this pic for your site"

I thought the photo looked interesting, so I replied to Barry saying:

"I'd like to add that one to the EdinPhoto web site as you suggested, but I don't know whether or not I'll be able to do that.  It depends where the photo came from.

So can you tell me:

if it was taken from a book, and if so which one?   OR

- if it was taken from a postcard, and if so, do you know who owns the card?

Sorry to have to ask you these questions, but I really need to check with the owner / copyright holder whether or not they would be happy for me to add the photo to my EdinPhoto web site."

Barry Potter replied telling me that he lives in South Yorkshire, but regularly visits friends in Corstorphine.  He added:

"Recently one of my friends in Corstorphine saw this picture posted at the bus stop which is situated to the right of the picture and photographed it.  It would appear there was no info on the picture as to who it belonged to."

On reading 3 above, I looked again at the photo taken at the bus stop, and realized that above the old view there was some text in a style that looked familiar to me, reading:

Corstorphine

Saint John's Road, looking west

Early 1900s

This leaves no doubt that:

a)  the bus stop picture is, in fact, a print-out taken a while ago from this page on the EdinPhoto web site,   AND

b)  the view in the picture comes from one of my own postcards, a card  published in the early 1900s by WR&S.

So there's no need for me to now add Barry's photo to the web site.  To see a better quality copy of the bus stop picture, please click on the thumbnail image below:
