Cafe, old A1 Haddington Feb 2008 - Coppermine - 16870.JPG
Old Garage/Cafe, old A1 Haddington Feb 2008

I enjoy seeing these old garages and cafes as a snaphsot to a bygone age, when this was the A1 (behind camera). Even older A1 into middle of Haddington on the other side of the building

This old sign is obviously a legacy of when the road to the left of this picture was the A1, to prevent traffic turning right across the busy road. An even older alignment of A1 through the middle of Haddington passes to the other side of the building to the right of the picture

I think this is a wonderfully periodic spot on an old major road

Heading to its junction with the A1.

Road junction, Milton Road
In 2007 the road junction was re engineered with a roundabout being replaced by a light controlled junction. As a result getting onto Milton Road from the new A1 is easier, but going from the A1 to the Sir Harry Lauder Road to Leith usually involves some queuing. The red sign refers to a similar project at a roundabout in Seafield.
