I think the few remaining Native Americans in Canada might disagree with that comment of your visitors! Am I right in remembering that the last bits of the Georgian designed New Town were actually completed just before the start of C20?

I took a trip that included Edinburgh when I was 27 in 1969. After I returned to Kansas City, Mo., I commented that I didn't know what "old" was until I got to the British Isles.

I live just down the highway from Toronto and if your house was built in the 50's...it's old! And that's 1950!

Barbara, we're so used to living in and amongst all these old buildings that I suppose we take them for granted. Our own house dates from 1824, so fairly 'modern' by Edinburgh standards!
