Sign is in good trim
A SLICE of Dalkeith’s business heritage has been revealed by an old shop sign.
Restoration work being carried out in High Street uncovered an original hand-painted sign saying Caledonian Laundry.
It was found when the Dalkeith THI/CARS project was removing the current fascia for Boombarbers.
Alan Mason of Dalkeith History Society, said: “None of my members can remember a laundry being there.
“It was a grocer’s and florist’s at one time.
“The laundry sign must be quite old, maybe dating back from the early 1900s.”
The old sign will be photographed and a tracing made to record the lettering.
A new timber fascia, with the new Boombarbers lettering, will be placed over the Caledonian Laundry sign.
