Alexander Henry's 200th birthday - Monday 4th June
      #316991 - 01/06/18 07:58 PM

This Monday coming is Alexander Henry's 200th birthday.

Someone suggested it would be a great idea to go fire yours this weekend, or even better, on Monday. If you do - post some photos or a video !

I'll nip down to Warriston cemetery on Monday.

An exhibition on Alexander Henry starts in The People's Museum, High Street, Edinburgh on 8th June, running until September, if you're in town.

There will be an article in a major Scottish newspaper in the next fortnight

Where abouts is he in Warrington Cemetry. I regularly walk through there.

Walk straight down from the entrance, down the steps, under the old railway bridge (where it's very wet ...) - he's about 50m along to the left .

I will have a look. I know exactly where that is. Often walk down through there with the dog. Itís a bit of tranquility in middle of Edinburgh. And I live opposite where he used to live.
