What Next?

1.  I'm continuing to photograph shops as I see them change over the years.

     I have a large collection of shop photos waiting to be added to the web site.

2.  I've started photographing:

-  Barber Shops throughout Edinburgh.

-  Tattoo Shops throughout Edinburgh.

-  shops with interesting names throughout Edinburgh

-  shops with numbers in their names throughout Edinburgh

-  shops with letters missing in their names throughout Edinburgh *

I started photographing the missing letter shops after taking photos of this shop near the top of Cockburn Street in the 1990s:

SNACK BARS

 

Snack Bars are common sites beside the streets in Edinburgh, but many of them don't stay around for very long.

Within a few weeks of taking my first photos of Edinburgh snack bars, I found that:

-  one had moved to a different location.

-  one had been destroyed in a fire

-  one had been stolen.

Here are some of my photos of the snack bars:

Thank you to Neil Lawrence for also noticing that there was also a picture on the right-hand side of this box, and photographing it for me (below).   Calton Hill and the Scott Monument can be seen in the background of this picture

I returned to check what was on the back of the box (the side that's against the wall) but found that it was still painted blue.
