Ah Binn's and it's famous clock for meeting your sweatheart under (if only ...) I'm so sad at what has happened to Princess St in my lifetime, the recent tram nonsense is the least of it! The rain continues to fall on my poor fur too, miaooowwww.

Cornflower

Yes, Binn's was the place to meet everyone!
You're right about Princes Street, which is pretty ghastly, even without the tram fiasco. On a brighter note, we did have a brief sunny spell this morning.

Dark Puss

Funny how I changed the sex of the street! One track minded cat ;-)

You're not the only one: Edinburgh Council commissioned a new sign for Princes Street Gardens, took delivery of it and had their workmen erect it a few days ago. It took members of the public to notice that it read "Princess St."

Dark Puss

Hehe!

I keep my memories of Princes Street locked safe in my heart. Last time was in the early 1980s and having seen what acid rain was doing to the countryside my husband and I said "Never again"

Cornflower

We had so much rain here last week that Princes Street Gardens was flooded, the Nor'Loch (which was drained in the mid 18th. century to create the garden area) re-forming!

I sympathize re the rain. In my part of the world we are having a heat wave! I shouldn't complain as it will be winter soon enough. But it is disconcerting to be woken up two nights in a row, at 2am, with the flashes of lightening and the heavy rolls of thunder.
