This is a view of the Water of Leith as it passes through Dean Village. We are looking towards the Dean Bridge which spans the little gorge created by the river. The trees now obscure the bridge. The Church was originally built as an early electricity sub station, a disguise so as not to spoil the area. No longer needed for electric purposes it has been fitted out as a church. Isn't life strange.
The main hall in Jenners Department Store. Jenners has been an Edinburgh landmark since 1895 but in recent years it's been more like a mall with different companies operating different sections but the building remains its old self.
The door at work faces south and has one of those little wide angle security lenses. Being rather dull inside, due to the absence of proper windows, we sometimes get a little diffracted beam hitting something, in this case a studio flash reflector. I just liked the effect.
More particularly this is the octagonal domed clock tower of the old Leith Provident Co-operative Society built in 1911. This was their flagship store and it was indeed a department store occupying the ground floor for a considerable distance along the street. Above the store were flats. The flats in the tower section being large and spacious. The top flat was owned by the actor Russell Hunter.
