"I found this particular picture on a skip in Drumdryan St. Tollcross in 1989.

It shows a boat laden with sailors and bears the inscription

'The May Queen as duty boat during the war'

Granton Harbour

"I was perusing some recent pictures on the EdinPhoto site and came across the one of Granton Harbour, Middle Pier  photos there.

This photo appears to be the same place.
