heritage of scotland…

Was admiring the sheer gaudiness of this shop front on the royal mile when this gent walked into my picture, could not believe my luck…He was very quick on his feet and yes, we all dress like that round here…Actually looking at these photos now it looks a bit like i am harassing the poor man in classic paparazzi style, but i kept my distance and i don’t think he actually noticed me…honest…

Incidentally, people have been living on this particular site for 7000 years and by the mid 1600’s there were around 70,000 people living within the royal mile, with tenements of 14 storeys and often 10 people to a room…
