The View

Thank you to Steven Oliver for allowing me to reproduce this photo.  This view looks to the SW from the end of Clarenden Terrace, across Queensferry Road to the houses in Buckingham Terrace.

The Lamp Post

At first sight, the lamp post is rather camouflaged by the branches of the tree.  Steven tells me that the lamp post is by MacKenzie & Moncur to a Falkirk Iron Co pattern.

It is not one of the patterns listed in MacKenzie & Moncur's 1937 catalogue:

MacKenzie & Moncur Catalogue - Street Lighting Standards, Brackets, etc. - 1937, Cover

Steven believes that this lamp post probably dates from a few years prior to 1937.
