I write threads on the more obscure or wacky bits of Edinburgh & Leith local history and Scottish modern history. Expect food, trains, old buildings and maps.
The thread about the Edinburgh Hostels for Women Students and their brief wartime role as an Internment Camp for German “Enemy Aliens”
The thread about the Twelfth Day of Christmas; the Drum and Drum House
The thread about the Eleventh Day of Christmas; the Pipes of Pipe Street
The thread about the Tenth Day of Christmas; Lord Russell Place and why the City honoured this name
The thread about the Ninth Day of Christmas; the Lady behind Lady Fife’s house, well and brae and what she has to do with Primrose
The thread about the Ratho Rail Crash of 1917; “an unfortunate illustration of the danger of taking things for granted”
The thread about the Eight Day of Christmas; who were the Maids of the Maiden Castle?
The thread about the Seventh Day of Christmas; Sven Swans a Swanstoning
The thread about the Sixth Day of Christmas; the geese of the Guse Dub
