Cardboard Box Factory, Bonnington Road, Edinburgh

This building is a two storey former factory designed by Stewart, Kay and Walls in 1939. In 1946 an extension was added in the same style. The building was listed as a Category C in 1992 by Historic Environment Scotland. The building is brick built with white render (now green), broad windows and bottle green tiles (appear to now be paint sadly). The windows are long strips with artifical stone block cills and lintels. On the corner of the building is the entrance door under a curved canopy with tall, broad stair window above.

The building is at 250 Bonnington Road. It was converted to flats some years ago. A great deal of the original features appear to have been lost.

Apparently the building was a former cardboard box factory though I’ve been able to find nothing on line to substantiate this.
