Edinburgh World Heritage Talk “You’ve Got Mail”
June 14, 2023
Wednesday 28 June 2023 at 6pm
St Mark’s Unitarian Church, 7 Castle Terrace, Edinburgh, EH1 2DP
Join Edinburgh World Heritage for the next in their World Heritage Site talks.
Andy Arthur returns for a second talk this year, focusing on the unusual layout and peculiarities of certain Edinburgh byways. Some even have 4 different street addresses and 9 different street signs! This all culminates on the creation of the Post Office Directories, one in particular by Peter Williamson.
Andy Arthur, Edinburgh’s weaver of historical threads, explores the mazes, mysteries and malfunctions of Edinburgh’s first postal services and the legacy they have left behind. Expect to see a fresh perspective on the city, and hear obscure and overlooked stories of Edinburgh’s past.
