Location inside Canongate Church, Edinburgh at OS Map Ref NT 264 738.

I really don't know which boys club this is, the name is just a guess based on the fact that it is inside the church and is a relatively recent memorial.


The Canongate Boys Club met just down from the Canongate Kirk in Panmure House, the home of the philosopher Adam Smith (1723-1790).

I was a member in the mid 60s and the club was run by Ronald Selby Wright who was the minister of the Canongate Kirk and was also the Radio Padre during WWII.
