This is an image I made as part of a series of disappearing traders and the changing urban environment. It is of an old-fashioned shop which has been on Leith Walk in Edinburgh for years. It is one of the shops which has been owned by the same family for years and the owner knows everything there is to know about his wares and you get really personalised service. It feels like a sadly dying breed. It is a wonderful shop front, and I loved all the 'motoring ephemera' displayed in the windows and the retro sign. And the brilliant yellow!
