Portobello Glass Bottle Works

This photograph was taken on a train from the glass bottle works at Portobello in May 1959.

Thank you to Sandy Mullay who wrote:

"The bottle-works were best known in the district as Wood's. 

The train is standing on a bridge over the Figgate Burn (also known as the Braid Burn) at Portobello."
