"Gable between Pottinger's Tent and 82 Main
Gable in dispute -

This photo was taken at Main Street, Newhaven.
Pottinger's tenement is presumably the building on the left. DG
Court = Dean of Guild Court.

There is an advert for 'Milkmaid Milk' on
the shop wall
another photograph of the same building, also taken in 1909. This

These photos were posted onto boards in an
old album that Archie Foley acquired a few years ago. Archie
believes that these are likely to be official photos that probably once
belonged to Leith City Council.
