Photo and Fundraising

Thank you to Kenneth Williamson for sending me this photo.

Unfortunately, the photo of Gorgie District Pipe Band appears to be fairly poor quality.  That's not really surprising, given that it was sold for one old penny, and that penny included a contribution to fundraising for 'Western Lodge' of 'National Union of Disabled ex-Servicemen'.

I found that the fundraising  comments on the back of the photo made interesting reading.

"This photo of Gorgie District Pipe Band, 1925, appears to double up as some kind of raffle ticket for a watch."

The Photo

Is that Cox's Glue works or some other industrial building at Gorgie with the tall chimney in the background of this photo?
