This picture from around 1910 shows South Queensferry High Street taken from just inside the old East port entrance John McFarlane’s Anchor Bar and Cyclists’ Rest can be seen on the left.

This inn was said to be the favoured watering hole for railway workers who stayed in Catherine Terrace at the top of McIver’s Brae.
