50 Years of Wonderland
Lothian Road institution Wonderland Models celebrates 50 years of trading this year. The family favourite was founded in 1972 by clothing retailer Peter Barton, who saw a gap in Edinburgh’s retail landscape for a specialist model shop. The business has endured all of the ups and downs of the British high street, developing into one of the largest online model retailers in the UK.
