A hive of industry

In the 1930s a large fence was erected around the beach and scrubland area by Leith Dock Commission, the predecessor to the Forth Ports Authority,  It stretched from the Fishmarket to Anchorfield.

According to Newhaven’s last working fishwife, Esther Liston, “The Hally belonged to the fishermen and they used to pull their boats up there.  If they had only left just one boat there, it would still have belonged to the Free Fishers but there wisnae a boat there and that’s how the Leith Dock Commission could take it.  . . . Now it’s a’ concrete.”
