Newly Opened Gas Works
This is one of a
series of photos of
Granton Gas Works taken at the time of the official opening of the gas
works in 1903
I've not yet discovered what part of
the works this was, but I know somebody who can probably tell me. If I
find the answer from him, I'll add it to this page.
This photo was printed by
Edinburgh Photographic Society Member, Gordon Rankin, from a wholeplate
(8.5" x 6.5") glass plate.
This is one of many glass plates, most dating from around
the 1960s, given recently to Gordon. The donor did not know the source of
these plates or who the photographer might have been.
