Edinburgh on This Day: History, Facts & Figures from Every Day of the Year [9781909626669]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
Edinburgh On This Day revisits all the most magical and memorable moments from the city's fascinating history, mixing in a maelstrom of quirky anecdotes and legendary characters to produce an irresistibly dippable Edinburgh diary - with an entry for every day of the year. From the important decisions that have moulded the city's very appearance to the 'white elephants' that promised much but faded into obscurity; from famous events and sporting triumphs to near-farcical court cases - here are the people, crimes, pollution, crises, murders, battles, strikes, pubs, tragedies, scandals, newspapers, bands, footballers, politicians and royals that have shaped this incredible city's history. Edinburgh is a city of culture, music and innovation, a city of sport and new beginnings, a city of education and spirituality. Read Edinburgh On This Day, and you'll discover hundreds of things you never knew you needed to know about Scotland's historical, mysterious and inspirational capital.
AUTHOR: As well as writing books, Ian Colquhoun is a concert promoter and actor, having appeared in films such as The King's Speech and Sunshine on Leith, as well as TV's Downton Abbey and Taggart. Ian has lived most of his life in Edinburgh, studied history and politics at the University of Edinburgh, and has a passion for Scotland's capital.
