In time the ‘Brig’ was filled in by rubble from the excavation works – some two million cartloads tipped out by contractors and private citizens – finally forming a great earthen mound, known now simply as The Mound.” – Stories in Stone

Waiting for the bus

…and waiting …and waiting …and waiting…

taking you to work in 2011

You know, really the worst thing about the chaos on the streets is that while Edinburgh Council claim “A high-quality, modern and efficient tram network is being created for Edinburgh and is scheduled to be running on the Capital’s streets by 2011” – I haven’t met anyone who actually believes that.
