to Lillian Paterson, Australia, whose family lived at 6 East Thomas

"I found this photo
of my brother, Alexander Paterson, on a pony in East
Thomas Street. He was born in 1954 and attended Lieth Walk School,
then Bellevue High School.
I asked him what was the
occasion when there were
horses in East Thomas Street and people
looking out the windows
queen came into Leith on her yacht when I was about that age and there was
celebrations. We went
onto Easter road to see her cavalcade but I only saw
the car tops.
woman was arrested for throwing a tomato at her and the woman was
sentenced under "Her Majesty's Pleasure".
The occasion was
some Anniversary for the Queen.'
Perhaps somebody else will
remember what the occasion was, and will recognise the woman in the photo."
