A tremendous collection of items from fur coats through furniture to sherbet fountains were nicely arranged as if in an everyday room from many of our pasts.
Lists of unusual businesses, information about the history of Leith Hospital and extracts from old phone books and other listings which included the following ship builders, chandlers, masters and owners were on display as well.
Added to that there were others to chat to, the welcome was warm and friendly and, as always, just a few minutes with others brought new understanding and thoughts to bear on my research.
A good outing and real blast from the past!
Thank you Living Memory Association!
