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 East
End of Princes Street. There is a large 'Harry Potter' display in
the shop window. The reflection of the Balmoral Hotel at the corner
of Princes Street and North Bridge can also be seen in the window.
