Sailors

Thank you to Shaeron Averbuch, an artist who is now based at the The Lighthouse gallery, West Harbour road, Granton, for allowing me to reproduce this photograph of her models of cavorting sailors.

These originally formed part of an exhibit, including sailors rolling barrels, resting on a wall and studying a chart.  The exhibit was on beside Leith Library at the corner of Ferry Road and North Junction Street:

The picture that can be seen in the background is part of a large mural by the partnership, 'Chalk & Grime'.

The exhibit suffered from vandalism at Leith, but these two sailors have been rescued and can now be found in the small garden beside The Lighthouse, West Harbour Road, Granton.
