Re: Hutton Dairy Lanark Rd Slateford

Hi Mark, The building including 1-5 Lanark Road can be seen just above the centre of this 1940s map. https://maps.nls.uk/view/102732770 This is a couple of miles from where I was raised, but not an area I was commonly in. My first memories of there are from the mid to late 1970s, by which time that ...
