Re: What Are You Currently Reading

On the Natural History of Destruction by W G Sebald. Being an essay about Germany's and especially German literature's failure to speak of the utter destruction of its cities during the Second World War, apparently. Cheerful. I'll tell you how it goes.

Re: New book on 'Past Present' theme

Whoever contributes, I hope the photo pairs are better lined up than in the Edinburgh one. Bitchy, moi? True, though.

Re: 'The Secret History of Our Streets' in Scotland

Moray Place is weird. Interesting choice for a programme. (The gardens behind it to the north are one of my favourite bits of the planet, incidentally.)

The Crags one's a belter too. Spot the old Dumbiedykes closest to the camera. Also, I understand that the Clean Air Act was of course A Good Thing, but dammit, city photos have never been quite as atmospheric since.
