The signal box at Portobello East was a distinctive structure, spanning the ECML on the Edinburgh side of the junction with 
the Waverley Route (behind the photographer) and the branch to Leith South (visible immediately above the ^20^ speed restriction sign). Seen here late in the afternoon of Sunday 22nd November 1970.
