    That is Mr. L. Berger, probably in the early
    70s judging from the decimal prices.

    Thank you Lord Snapcase for the details, and i had forgotten about the dates of the old/new money.

    I was wondering whereabouts was the shop. Someone has suggested that it may have been on Cadzow Place/London Road.

    We have discovered what we think is an advert for this shop, which is part of Museums & Galleries Edinburgh’s stored collections. It advertises the shop at 23 Cadzow Place and the proprietor as A. Berger ‘Wholesale and Retail Fruit Merchants and Confectioners’ (perhaps brother or father of L. Berger) selling as ‘The Jaffa King’

    A visitor to the Away for the Messages project (2023-24) identified the grocer as Lenny Berger, who ran the shop with his brother Norman.

    Thanks to everyone for your comments. I have updated the details. I was wondering, going by the reflection in the window, whether the shop was at Abbeyhill?

    Many happy memories of Lenny and Norman. We went there every Saturday for our fruit and veg.
