The gravestone nearest the
camera in this photo is to John Gold and some members of his family.
John is the grandfather of Connie Telfer-Smith, one of the contributors to
the EdinPhoto web site.
Connie grew up at Easter
Road, Edinburgh, and now lives in Norfolk Island, in the South Pacific,
between Australia and New Zealand.
I took this photo on a fine,
warm, sunny day in March 2012. Here is another photo of the grave
that I took on the same day.
The gravestones in this photo
are near the northern boundary wall of Eastern Cemetery.
The tenements in the background of this photo, beyond the cemetery
boundary wall, with the large window and gable feature above the central
doors, were built in 1924.
They are, from left to right:
- 1 St Clair Place
- 3 St Clair Place
- 14+16 St Clair Street
- 18 St Clair Street
centre of this photo, beyond the cemetery boundary wall, are Nos. 2, 4
,6 on the west side of St Clair Place. They would have been built,
perhaps, in the late 19th century.
