Former Farmers Boy, Port Street (centre). (c) Neil Richardson .
The Farmers Boy was a short-lived beerhouse that was only open in the 1860s for a few years. It was situated a couple of doors down Port Street from the Crown & Anchor. In the above photo from 1986, the old Farmers Boy was in the central empty shop.
Of course these days, Port Street is best know for the superb Port Street Beer House which opened in 2010. A careful comparison of the above shots shows that the left hand side of the @portstreetbeer used to be the Farmers Boy beerhouse.
