About my book

I started writing my bookDalrymple Crescent cover after I decided to research the history of the whole of my street in Victorian times. – 27 houses over 40 years. It is called “Dalrymple Crescent., a snapshot of Victorian Edinburgh ISBN 978-0-9566713-0-1 and is self published.  It is available from me directly, through Amazon, or from the leading Edinburgh bookshops.

In it I have tried to link the lives of the people from the street with the wider social life of Edinburgh at the time, looking at professions, where they came from, family life etc. From the newspapers of the day, I have also tried to capture their attitudes and the issues of the time.
