The vicinity of the Sheriff Brae

People of Leith are not likely to forget that the
vicinity of the Sheriff Brae is a district inseparably
connected with the name of Gladstone, and readers
of Hugh Miller’s interesting ” Schools and Schoolmasters
” will scarcely require to be reminded of
the experiences of the stone-mason of Cromarty,
in his visit to this quarter of Leith.
