Young Woman Taking A Break At Nelson's Printing Works On Corner Of Parkside Terrace c.1948


About this memory

Eileen MacMillan.

Eileen MacMillan worked at Nelson's only three days a week as there was still a shortage of paper after the war. She later left to work at the Younger's bottling plant on Holyrood Road as they paid four times the wages. Eileen was born in Holyrood Square.

Thomas Nelson & Sons Parkside Printing Works were demolished in 1972. Scottish Widows now occupies the site.
