Waverley Pen Company offices, Blair Street (1983), taken 34 years ago
How I miss the magic clutter of the colourful old advertising of the Waverley Pen Company in Blair Street! It was a reminder of Edinburgh's former eminence as Britain's main printing and publishing centre outside of London. It's surprising how long these advertising signs lasted. My guess is that they disappeared some time in the late 1980s, early 1990s.
