Rank's Flour Mill 1960s


About this memory

To the rear, the West Breakwater. Much of the land between the mill and the breakwater has been reclaimed.

The area to the left of where the mill once stood is now occupied by Chancelot Mill.

Work on the West Breakwater started before the Second World War and was being carried out by a Dutch firm. Building stopped during the war and the dredgers were tied up in Leith Docks. The breakwater was completed after the war came to an end.
