Background

 

1990s

People at Work in Edinburgh

I decided in 1989 that, during the 1990s, I'd try to visit and photograph all the industries that I could find in Edinburgh.

I hoped to get a collection of photos that might be interesting to look back on in the future.

The photos were all taken on colour slide film  -  Kodachrome + Fuji Velvia.  I've now added some of these photos to my web site.

www.edinphoto.org.uk

I began in January 1990 by photographing the stone works opposite the Esso Petrol Station at Canonmills, because it looked as if it would not be in  business for much longer.

Here  is a small selection of the photos:
