Auld-Riekie Cross Well.
Etching. Plate 108 x 122mm. 4¼ x 4¾".
Outside a tavern in Edinburgh, a brawl begins between two drunkards; a thirs man sits on a barrel with the tankard in one hand and a spoon in the other. Edinburgh gets the name Auld-Riekie (old smoky) from the thick columns of smoke that would spew into the air from the chimneys where coal and wood fires were burnt.
Not in NMS.
