description on the back
of this card reads:
Giles Cathedral ranks as one of the oldest buildings in Edinburgh.
The date of its foundation is unknown, but records show that the present
edifice was built by Alexander 1.
This church was practically destroyed in 1385
by Richard II of England, and the building as now standing erected.
The church is also famous for its connection with John Knox."
NOTE: St Giles is often referred to as a cathedral
as it is on this card. However was only a cathedral for a very short
period. For the rest of the time, including the present, it should
be described as St Giles Church. The Church of Scotland does not
have any cathedrals.
