A Collector of Oddities

Ghost Sign

A lovely ghost sign in William Street.

We were at the Trades Maiden Hospital helping out for Doors Open day. It originally provided an education for the daughters of trades people who had fallen on hard times and was set up by Mary Erskine and the Craftsmen of Edinburgh in 1704. It now holds the trades museum with lots of interesting artifacts, including the Blue Blanket.
