"In 1987, I handled the sale of the old family
home, No 51, Bellevue.
It was "Old Miller" who "built" most of the
tenement side of Bellevue Road. His son Jimmie (later Sir James
Miller) was the only person ever to become both Lord Provost of Edinburgh
and Lord Mayor of London.
The Sail-Training Association boat, "Malcolm
Miller", was named after his son."
"My great-grandfather Dow had the town-dairy
farm at Broughton Point, the in-bye grazing being where the 1930s Miller
houses are located in East Claremont St overlooking Broughton Road.
There was also grazing at Claremont Bank
"behind" the TA Drill Hall; and there may have been more down Beaverbank
at roughly where the old Duncan's Chocolate factory was later built.
Somewhere I have a poor photo of a painting
done from a postcard, of the farm house, looking from Broughton Road with
the either the belfry of the Primary School or a vent on the old Patrick
Thompson's Repository showing up."
