The book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows,
the last book in a seven-book series by J K Rowling went on sale at
midnight on 20/21 July 2007 at several branches of Waterstone's Book Shop
and elsewhere in Edinburgh.
Here, is a short queue that
had formed by early afternoon outside Waterstone's Bookshop at the West
End of Princes Street. The queue begins at the barrier at the shop
doorway, with the Harry Potter scarf attached.
There were several customers in costume. They are in the upper-left
corner of the picture above, but can be seen better here. Please
