This book of colour photographs celebrates the red sandstone buildings of Edinburgh, Leith and Portobello. Much of this legacy was constructed from the 1880s to the early 1900s when the availability of this quarried stone from the Dumfries and Annan regions inspired the architecture of the capital city and other conurbations in Scotland. The photographs are divided into sections: public institutions, churches, schools and other educational establishments, pubs, cafes, and of course, homes. There is a detailed index which records the best of Edinburgh's intriguing red sandstone buildings, whose elegant designs represent some of the city's finest architecture.
