Edinburgh

Thank you to Neil Scott for allowing me to reproduce Photo 2 above.

Neil wrote

Bar Staff

"This photo is of the bar staff at Rutherford’s, probably around 1960.  Bob Turnbull (the Licensee) is on the extreme left (in the suit), I am next to him – with the beard and pint!  The chap on the right, drinking the pint, is Doug Brown, but my memory fails to identify the other two, unfortunately.  Maybe some visitors to your site will recognise them"

Neil Scott, Edinburgh:  October 25,, 2008

Question

Do you recognise the two un-named bar staff in the photograph above?   If so, please email me to let me know, then I'll pass on the details to Neil Scott.

Thank you.  -  Peter Stubbs:   October 25, 2008

Thank you Eric Gold who replied:

"I loved Neil's photo of Rutherford’s.  That photo takes me back.

Bob the owner looked younger then (ha ha ha ha), but I can’t remember the staff who were featured in the photo with Bob.  I was wee at the time.

Bob was a great friend of my uncle Tommy (Cokie), well known in Edinburgh’s Southside. When Cokie died in 1975 Bob organised all the coaches, and after a funeral wake and all the booze was free to friends and family.

Bob missed Cokie a lot, and I too miss Cokie and Bob.

I would sell my latest toy, my Sony HD top of the range TV,  just to be able to go back in time, to walk in on Bob and say “Goodness this place needs decorating” (ha ha ha ha) and Bob would have me paying for the paint and labour (ha ha ha).

I asked Neil who had taken the photograph of the bar staff at Rutherford's.

Neil replied:

The Photo

"I took the photo!   I had a Pentax S1a in those days, and simply put it on a chair in the bar, set the self-timer, and – well you know the rest!"

1960 and 2007

"Incidentally, if you compare my photo of the bar area, with the colour one taken in 2007, you will see that the bar fittings and surrounds have hardly changed in over 40 years!!!"

Neil Scott, Edinburgh:  October 26, 2008

Thank you to Brian Lee who replied

Rutherford's Bar Staff

"The young man 3rd from the left at the back of this photo is my dad, John Lee.  He worked at Rutherford's on and off for years.  He also worked in Stewart's Bar and Captain's Bar.

The Lee family all grew up and stayed at No 17 Drummond Street for years.  Sadly, my dad is no longer with us.  He died in Dec 1992, aged 61."

About six years after I received Photo 2 above, I received an earlier photo of Rutherford's Bar.

It was Photo 1, sent to me by Rory McCluskey you to Rory McCluskey who wrote

Rutherford's Bar Staff

1920s - 1940s?

Photo 1

    Rutherford's Bar Staff  -  Photograph probably taken between 1920s and 1940s. ©

"My Great Uncle Roger Paton (1891–1944) is in this photo, I think he is likely to be the one on the far left.  Unfortunately there are no details on the original. My guess is that it was probably taken between 1920 to 1940."
