Interesting features on this map

In this area is the Scottish Printing Ink Factory & Chemical Works. The works were owned for many years by A B Fleming, and later became part of the Croda group, latterly operating from Maybury, Edinburgh.

The area immediately south of these works was soon to be used for construction of the Granton Gas Works by Edinburgh and Leith Corporations Gas Commissioners. Construction started in 1898 and the official opening was in 1902.

Granton House, immediately to the west and near ther left edge of this map, became the official residence of the Gas Works Engineer and Manager.

Also shown at the north east of this map is Granton Iron Works.
