Thank you to Frank Ferri who wrote:

The Shore

"I took this photo of Bill's Bar on The Shore at Leith, next to Ship Inn, opposite where DeNero boat restaurant is now moored, around 1960 when I had just bought my first 35mm camera.

Bill's Bar at The Shore, Leith - around 1960

Bills bar, at the time, was the only one on the Shore area (known for its reputation for dancing girls) to discourage ladies of the night.

It was a basic pub with typical low maintenance Formica covered bar and furnishings of the era."
