Updates

Oct 16 to Nov 11

Between Oct 16 and Nov 11,  I added more than 250 new pages to the site held on my PC, but there was a technical problem that prevented me from publishing  these changes for others to see.

Fortunately, the problem has now been resolved, and I've now published these updates; so you should now be able to see them. 

They include more photos of Leith and Granton and more news of Edinburgh.  Please see the mid-October, late-October, early-November pages and the Nov 11 updates below.
