Jeanie Deans

Jan Bondeson has written an article on Jeanie Deans cottage which stood on the south side of the city facing the Queen’s Park.  A fictional character who appears inThe Heart of Midlothian” which was published in 1818, Jeanie was one of Sir Walter Scott’s most popular characters as she was honest, loyal and sincere. Her name was given to several public houses, ships and railway locomotives. The illustration was painted by R P Phillmore and sold as a postcard.
