In the second installment of some visual bits of Vampire Empire, we decided to share some wonderful old pictures of a wonderful old city. Edinburgh. Prince Gareth lives there, high above the Old Town, in the ancient castle.
We love Edinburgh because we were married there in Greyfriar's Kirk (hence the name of the book and the hero). We'll post shots of Greyfriar's Kirk and kirkyard later, but now we're focusing on Edinburgh Castle.
The city is both lovely and grim. The historical heart of Edinburgh retains much of the architecture of the 19th century (and centuries before too). Most of the photos posted below come from the wonderful www.capitalcollections.org.uk from the City of Edinburgh. Check it out for more old portraits of that city.
