Thank you to Danny Callaghan for sending me this photo of the cottage at the corner of Warriston Road and Boat Green.

Danny wrote in his recollections of Canonmills:

Souness & Spiers

"I worked for Souness & Spiers on Warriston Road in the early 1960s.  They were a timber merchants

They felled their own trees at Newbattle Abbey, Dalkeith, and other locations.  They then  cut and 'naturally dried' them in large open timber sheds which ran along the wall opposite the Water of Leith. 

Their office was a small brick building, now the entry to Boat Green flats.

Warriston Road at Boat Green

The cottage to the right of entry road is now a photography studio.  It was the original railway cottage and was occupied by our cleaner and yard caretaker."
