Death of Leith Captain - Sailing Ship Days Recalled:  A prominent Leith shipmaster, Captain Alex Cromarty, who retired from sea sevice about 28 years ago, has died at his residence, 51 Summerside Place, Leith, in his 89th year.  For over 60 years he was in the service of Messrs Wm. Thomson & Co.  owner of the Ben Lines and all his ships.  Captain Cromarty belonged to Stronsay.  He entered Messrs Thomson & Company's service in 1863 as a second mate and about four years later was appointed shipmaster, being given the command of the sailing ship Annie Laurie. in the course of his career, Captian Cromarty sailed to many parts of the world.  He was principally engaged in the Australian and South  American trades, and also for a time traded to North America.
      About 50 years ago, at a time when large numberers of people were settling in Australia, he frequently carried emigrants there from this country.  In those days a voyage to Australia generally occupied about 100 days, and in rough weather, of course, the passage was much more protracted.  Leith vessels on that trade were usually away from the home port for about a year on each trip.  The last vessel Captain Cromarty commanded was the sailing ship Bencleuch.  He retired from the sea services in 1898 and since then was engaged in ship survey work, and he also had charge of the appointment of junior officers for the Ben Line.
        Captian Cromarty was the oldest member of Leith Trinity House, and held the pokition of Deputy Master, and he was one of the original members of the  Forth Pilctage Authority which was constituted by the Board of Trade.
       In January of  this year the diamond wedding of Captain and Mrs Cromarty was celebrated
