SNUFF FACTORY CLOSES DOWN
Only One Left In Scotland.
A decline in the snuff habit is said to have been the cause of closing down of the old snuff mill on the Water of Leith just outside Edinburgh City Boundary, at Juniper Green. The mill has been worked for over two hundred years but the snuff trade has been waning for some time, and orders have been scarce.
The smaller mill at the east end of Juniper Green, by the railway station is now said to be the only mill of its kind in Scotland.
