1911 one member made an appeal for premises nearer the ground:
I ance mair my youthfu’ prime,
Arthur’s Seat I aft did climb,
wadna try my puff sae sair,
climb a toilsome flicht o’ stairs
hech, sirs! Noo losh me! It seems
ane o’ Jacob’s ten-mile dreams
sair’s my fecht (when sair’s my feet)
climb the stair in Castle Street
grievance noo ye’ll quickly guess,
fein would see our E.P.S.
rooms mair flash, no just sae high,
mair o’ foreground, and less sky.”
EPS remained at 38 Castle Street until
the premises were sold for £950 in 1925.
