Canongate Scouts

"My late step-father was a photographer in his teens, working for Dalkeith Advertiser, before turning to engineering.  For him,  photography was a life-long passion, and he was an avid collector of photos.

Here is a photo of Canongate Scouts that I found in his  collection. I've never seen it before, and don't know where he got it.   Perhaps it could go into your archives, and you can see if any of the people were known to any of your other readers."

Thank you to Ian Wood for identifying this as a Cricket XI

Ian wrote:

Canongate Scouts

"Although I was not in this picture I did play for the Club at that time but unfortunately was usually either 11th man or score keeper.  I must have been score keeper on that day.  Ha! Ha!

I was a member of the Canongate Kirk Choir and Boys Club in the 50's before emigrating to Canada in 1961."

Ian Wood, Ottawa, Canada:  January 7, 2009
