Hope you enjoyed the Deacon Brodie images and the words from Stevenson's play of the same name. If you want to read more, the play is available free online as part of a book called "Three Plays".

William Brodie was a Deacon of Edinburgh, a respected cabinet-maker ( Stevenson's father owned furniture he had made ). He used the position to steal keys and, by night, rob people. This double life was part of the inspiration for Stevenson's Jekyll and Hyde.

Thanks to my daughter for playing the part of Brodie. There are more images so he may return, but for now, we'll leave him making his escape...

You need to take Napoleon out of your pictures. Makes them look French.

Thanks.

I was there in June so I guess I lucked out. lol

Love Edinburgh, may fav city 💖

Edinburgh shines through all the seasons.🌞🌧🌨❄🌥🌦❄

Two seasons in south Texas as well-hot and not hot😂

I love Edinburgh!

Ours are winter and road construction

Right there with this, CNY in the USA, we have winter and the 4th of July, lol.

Beautiful photo love it

Hahaa!! And we're always there in September, the perfect month!

Better than Canada. Winter and construction

Actually, I'd change that to July. June can be very difficult these days.

Beautiful

And June is not always reliable

I live in southern California. We have fire season and summer.

Heading down the royal mile . To deacon brody’s for a pint .

May seems to be the best month now.

And edinburgh is beautiful in any seasons

Mysteriously dark. My thoughts went to the Duke of Wellington or perhaps it's some other seafaring captain? Fabulous!!

I can feel he chill in the air, his heavy breathing as he is on a mission. Love it!

Really atmospheric.Very mystical and intriguing. 💕

These dark Edinburgh places always remind me of Burke & Hare.

This reminds me of the Amadeus movie posters from roughly a thousand years ago.

I look at these dark scenes and instantly think of Burke & Hare.

What’s napoleon doing in Edinburgh?

Love this!

This one really is spooky but still beautiful
