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 are customers from the queue that
had formed by early afternoon outside Waterstone's Bookshop at the West End of Princes Street.
They are seen here with their Hogwarts case being photographed by a
Daily Record photographer.
