Does any lady of a certain age remember Benny's in the 1950s?  It was a small independent ladies' shoe shop, just past the Usher Hall up Lothian Road.

No, I'm not a cross dresser.  The reason I remember it is that my girlfriend of the time would often look longingly in their window at the unique selection of high-heeled shoes on display, but they were very expensive at the time.

Patterned-heel nylons were fashionable at the time, with little butterfly or flower arrangements.  I'd better leave it at that or my disclaimer will lose all credibility  (LOL)."
