In is interesting to note that our web site is being found and accessed worldwide.  The office has received the following message from Australia:

“Hello,

Two watercolour paintings of the late 19th century Granton Harbour are on their way back to Scotland from Australia.

Your local historical society is featuring them on their website at:

http://www.edinphoto.org.uk/0_P/0_paintings_weir_granton_west_pier.htm

They will be offered for sale in the coming weeks by Edinburgh auctioneers Shapes.

I hope this is of some interest or use to you.

Yours faithfully,
