Margaret Tait 1918-1999 Filmmaker & Poet In the 1950s and 60s, 91 Rose Street was home to Margaret Tait's production company Ancona Films. It was here that Tait held the annual 'Rose Street Film Festival'. 'During the Edinburgh Festival last year, we put on a show of short films here at 91 Rose Street. All sorts of people come to see it, among them the children of Rose Street. Rose Street is a rather tough street and I know the children just came up in the first place because it was a free show. But some of them came several times and watched apparently with great interest.'
