    My 2x great grandfather, a plasterer, lived at 33 Dean Path from 1883 through 1901. His name was Andrew Nicol (born 1846), and his wife’s name was Janet Steel. Their 2 children, Andrew Nicol (born 1868) and Jane Nicol grew up there. I can’t find any other pictures of the building at 33 Dean Path, so I appreciate this one very much (thank you for posting). If there is any more information you have, or if you have any more pictures, I’d love to see them. Thanks for your consideration.

    Do you have any photos of your family which could compliment the family details that you have provided above (its not essential however). Your families Story however briefly would make an interesting read which I would be delighted to add to the Edinburgh Collected website. I have lots and lots of material about the Dean Village. You can email and Edinburgh Libraries will pass the message onto me.

    Certainly, Patrick, I will respond to the email given above. My family lived first in Dean Village then in Stockbridge, mostly on St. Stephen Street (near the arch), but also on Saunders before the demolition (among others). Look for my email. I hope to create a scrapbook here soon.
