When I asked to take a picture of this handsome character he pointed at his sign saying “Photos = Coins” (see below). I assume that he is one of those living statues, but he was obviously enjoying a break in the sunshine outside one of the Royal Mile’s many old pubs.
Come back tomorrow for the next instalment of the Royal Mile tour (I am still away).
P.S. I wonder what ‘One Good Turn’ would be for the Dark Angel of the North.
