Thank you to Paul Sutherland for allowing me to reproduce these photos from his collection.

Aerial Photos

"Browsing through an old file of pictures, I came across these three aerial views of the breweries at Craigmillar, taken obviously before the building of the 'dreaded scheme' **.  'The Innocent Railway can be seen running through one of these photos."

**i.e. The Craigmillar housing scheme.

The Scheme

Here is a photo of part of Craigmillar Estate which Paul refers to above as the 'dreaded scheme'.  The building of this estate began around 1930. 

This photo is one of a series that I took in 2007, as the houses were about to be demolished.

   Niddrie Mains Drive from Wauchope Terrace, shortly before demolition

Aerial Photos

"These photos appear to be 1930s era. ***

I believe that they would have been taken for one of the brewery companies because on the back of one of them there are boundary markings, marking out an empty field beside the Robert Deuchar building.  On the back of another, there are street names in pencil."

Paul Sutherland, Glasgow, Scotland:  September 15, 2013

***  In fact, the three aerial photos above may have been taken a little earlier than 1930s.  I believe that the building of houses on the Craigmillar estate began around 1930.
