A to Z of 2205: Edward St

Edward St is named after Edward Manicombe Farleigh of "Cairnsfoot". It was formerly part of the Cairnsfoot Estate.

The old blue factory in one of your pictures used to be the IXL factory that made Kelso wheel barrows. There was a large fire there in the late 60's early 70's after which it was rebuilt. I can still remember the gas bottles exploding from the intensity of the fire and watching the hot scraps of metal shooting off into the night air, as a young tacker it was very scary.
