Where was this Business?

From this old bill head can you locate where this shop was in Haddington?

See some comments on our Facebook post.

Founded in 1755, Roughead, later Roughhead and Park, became one of two prominent seed merchants in Haddington, the other being Dods.   Their business was carried out at what is now the central section of the John Gray Centre.   A hoist is preserved in situ in the Local History Library.

I worked for Roughead & Park Seed Merchants Lodge Street as an office junior in 1970 – the building is now the John Gray Library.

The items listed in the advert suggest it was the Rosehall foundry as Lodge Street was their seed building.
