Thank you to Terry Cox for allowing me to reproduce pages from a MacKenzie & Cox street lighting catalogue, published in Edinburgh in 1937.  The catalogue was amongst Terry's father's possessions.

I have summarised the content of the catalogue below, and have provided links to the pages that I felt might have the most relevance to Edinburgh and/or might be the most interesting pages to view.
