Sir Sean Connery

The illustration from James Grant’s ‘Old and New Edinburgh’ shows the West Meadows during the 19th century. The Meadows provided a playground for the children living in the industrial area of Fountainbridge including Sir Sean Connery and his brother Neil. The One o’ clock Gun originally fired from the Half Moon Battery which can be seen in the distance. Sir Sean will be sadly missed.
