Maybury

A small district of W Edinburgh, which takes its name from Maybury Road, opened in 1927 by engineer Sir Henry Maybury (1864 - 1943) in his capacity as Director General of Roads in the Ministry of Transport, who was the first to seriously promote a Forth Road Bridge. The district is now dominated by a significant road junction between the A8 and the A902. At the junction is the Gala Maybury Casino, built as the Maybury Roadhouse in 1935 and a fine example of Art Deco architecture.
