In 1937 the licence was held by Robert Urie McAlpine, the licence was transferred to him as trustee of the late William McAlpine who held the certificate before him. The pub was sold shortly afterwards to Archibald Black, Archie was known to serve the locals here for over twenty years. Archie and his wife lived in nearby Altyre Street in a building called by the locals as Black's Building, after his death his wife took over the licence.
