Notes: Edinburgh.—A new church has been opened at Granton, in connection with the Church of Scotland. It is built by the Duke of Buccleuch, from designs by Messrs Hardy and Wight, in the Early English style, to hold 350. The lancets are moulded, and the roof open, constructed with trusses resting partly on the walls, and partly on corbel pillars. The church contains a fine stained glass window, with representation of the “Parable of the Talents.” This was erected as a tribute of respect to the memory of the late J Hawkins, CE., superintendent of works of Granton harbour. The cost was £2,000. [Building News 26 July 1878 p93]
