Photograph of the junction of Aberdour Road and Queensferry Road. All the buildings are the same as they were fifty years ago when this was taken in 1965. The Cottage Inn pub building can be seen on the left of the photo, with an old signpost pointing the way to Aberdour on the right.

    Note also the bus stop on Aberdour Road for the 1/1A to Linburn Road, conveniently located right outside the Cottage Inn. Stood at that stop many a time waiting on a bus to Blacklaw Farm after visiting relatives in Rosyth. I wonder how much the rise of the private car contributed to the demise of pubs such as The Cottage Inn.

    We moved in when the doctor moved. The old waiting room became our kitchen. We were having dinner one night and someone walked right into our kitchen expecting to see the doctor. He was rather embarrassed, my brothers and I found it hilarious.

    I think that the car parked on the right must be my father’s.He was Dr.Gordon and was in Practice with Dr.Cross until Cross retired in January 1973. I can’t make out the registration plate, but the make and twin colour of the car, match the Wolsely Dad had in 1965. We used to live at # 54 Aberdour Road until 1960. I have many happy memories of living there when I was very young.

    Dr Gordon was my doctor when I lived in St Lawrence St about half way along Aberdour Rd. I worked in Whitehead’s garage in the 1950’s and Dr Gordon used to bring in his green Triumph Mayflower reg no HSA 725 which was an Aberdeen registration then.
