I commented on the change in spelling of 'Peluquer..' in Photos 7, 8 and 9.  Thank you to one of the EPS Members for telling me: 
"Peluquaria = Hairdresser's shop.        Pelequara = Hairdresser (female).        Pelequero = Hairdresser (Male)."

Shop and Car

Often when travelled around Edinburgh photographing shops and restaurants, I found cars parked  in front of them.
Usually, I would return later, but if I felt that the car matched the shop, I took the photo.
