Private gardens sign, Abercromby Place
If you were led blindfolded into Edinburgh's New Town and had the blindfold removed, it wouldn't take you very long to work out where you were from the many clues around you like this one. While the sign denotes privilege and exclusivity, the denial of equal access has to be balanced against the fact that private ownership has probably been the single, most effective force in conserving much of Edinburgh as we now see it and appreciate it.
