Edinburgh has lost some much loved institutions over the years.
From Ripping Records to Brattisani’s famous chippy, we take a look at 18 lost Edinburgh businesses that are gone but not forgotten.
Legendary chippy Brattisani once had branches all over the city, with the most famous located at Morrison Street and Newington. Here, Charles Brattisani surveys his fish and chip restaurant in Haymarket for the last time in 2002. Photo: Colin Hattersley

7. Mr Boni's
Mr Boni's on Home Street in Tollcross was the number one ice cream shop in Edinburgh before S Luca decided to migrate from Musselburgh. The family-owned institution served all manner of ices and specialised in ice cream cakes for children's birthdays. Photo: Julie Bull
8. Odeon cinema
Opening as the New Victoria on 25 August 1930, the same day Sean Connery was born, the Odeon cinema on Clerk Street has been much missed since its closure in 2003. Although it has lain vacant for almost 20 years, the art deco building thankfully still stands. Photo: Albert Jordan
