Town Guard call it a day
Town Guard call it a day
Town Guard re-enactors heading home (or to the pub?) after doing their duty at the Edinburgh Riding of the Marches ceremony at the mercat cross. There was a time when they would have only had to march another fifty yards to reach the Guard-house which stood in the middle of the High Street before its demolition in 1795. Today, its outline is marked by brass plates set in the roadway.
