Croan & Sons had a large low kipper factory, close to Newhaven
Fishmarket, where they smoked kippers in ovens, using a fire
of oak sawdust.
The factory moved in the mid-1990s, further west along the coast to
West Shore Road, Granton.
In early 2008, the company moved again.
The old kipper factory seen here was
immediately to the east of Newhaven fishmarket, until it moved to West
Harbour Road beside Granton Western Harbour.
The kippers here have passed through a bath
and are now coming along the conveyor belts towards the small team of
workers who will load them onto trolleys and trays ready for smoking in
