The Incorporation of Baxters











The Incorporation of Baxters was the Union of Bakers back in the days when Dean Village, was an industrial powerhouse of Edinburgh, full of mills. The first photo shows what looks like a large oven (now filled in) with a plaque for the Incorporation above it; the second photo is a different angle on the same building and the last photo shows a smaller plaque for the Incorporation that is found on the bridge at Bell's Brae in Dean Village.

There's an interesting find - and good information on it too.

It saddens me to see building that are no longer used, but it's good to know that there are signs of it's history. Great post.

Betty - the building is now housing so it's still sued, just not for its original purpose
