Evening Read

"I'm still clearing out the attic, and have now discovered this photo that I took at around 8.30pm on a fine summer's evening in 1961. The Botanics don't stay open so late nowadays.

This photo was exhibited at Edinburgh Photographic Society."

Yes Allan:

Closing Time

I remember the Botanics in the 1960s.  The closing time then used to be related to sunset.  I think the closing time was possibly half an hour before sunset in the summer months.
