Another dull day during the Edinburgh monsoon season, but not enough rain to dampen the enthusiasm of these Festival visitors watching street acts.

I suppose the Tron has always been a place of entertainment ... of sorts.

"...thair wes dailie hanging, skurging, nailling of luggis [ears], and binding of pepill to the Trone, and booring of toungues..." -- Diary of John Nicoll (1650s)

"The Lords found John Lawsone, indwellar in Leith, to be a false lying witnes, and also ane false informer of an assize*, and ordaines him to be set upon the Trone ane hour, and his tongue to be bored with ane yrone, and thereafter to be dismissed. And in lyke manner find John Rob to be ane false informer of witnesses; and ordain him to be set upon the Trone, and his lugg** to be nailed to the Trone be the space of ane hour, and thereafter to be dismissed. And declares both the persons forsaids to be infamous in all tyme coming; and their haill moveables to be escheat* to his Majestie's use." -- Acts of Sederunt, 6th February, 1650
