These venerable wooden bodied vehicles were still being used in the early 1970s for the transport of grain between Leith Docks and the North British Distillery maltings at Gorgie see image 29927. I notice that wagon No. 120 in the SRPS collection was built for the Leith General Warehousing Co. by Hurst Nelson & Co. of Motherwell in 1903, so presumably No. 99 (on the left) was even older. Photographed at Leith South on 22 November 1970.
