I didn't know that either, I've always thought of it as ending at Picardy Place (even though I always knew that Vinyl Villains etc was actually Elm Row). What's the bit from Pilrig Street to Elm Row called?
It’s got lots of names and one side is a different name from the other. You’ve got Albert Place, Croal Place, Haddington Place, There’s others, but I can’t remember them all. Shrubhill or Shrub Place might be another one.I didn't know that either, I've always thought of it as ending at Picardy Place (even though I always knew that Vinyl Villains etc was actually Elm Row).

The original plan was to have Wester Road on the other side of Leith Walk, running parallel just like Easter Road. Not sure why it didn't happen.Easter Road the Eastern Road . A lot of fields. Eastfield, Westfield, Southfield, Northfield. Lots of farming communities outside the Royal Mile.
Just said to my spendid brother in law how a street name can effect your whole life. Both our fathers from Blackfriars Street , Hibs daft. Easter Road is in our souls we are both 65 years young.
