Thank you to Angela Duncan for providing a copy of this photo, published in the Edinburgh Evening Dispatch.

Does anybody recognise any of the ladies in this photo or know when the photo might have been published in the newspaper?

Angela asked:

Women's Guild

"Does anyone have any information on this pic?

There was also a club called 'The Busy Bee'.

Thank you to Sandra Williamson, a Director of Scotmid and Secretary of the Scottish Co-op Women's Guild Eastern Branch, for sending the very helpful reply below.

"This colourful, lavishly illustrated 242pp book is available, price £5, from The Museum of Edinburgh shop tel: 0131 529 4143.   The book contains the following information:

Women's Guild Banner

'Scottish Co-operative Women’s Guild Craigentinny Branch was founded in 1938 and operated until 1968.

They met in Craigentinny Castle which is depicted on the banner.

When they disbanded in 1968 the banner was altered and was passed on to Restalrig Branch which disbanded in 1980.'

Who is in this Photo?

    St Cuthbert's Co-operative Asssociation Women's Guild - Craigentinny Branch ©

The lady with the hat is Mrs Isa McNair.   She was National President of the Scottish Guilds in the 1940s. She would have been given the honour of unveiling the banner

I assume the four ladies with the rosettes are the four officials:

President

Vice-President

Secretary

Treasurer.

The tall lady with dark hair could be Mrs Isabella Fairnington.**"
