Artist's Description

The Last Drop is a popular pub in the Grassmarket area of Edinburgh, Scotland.

The name does not refer to a drink as you may think, but rather it eludes to the fact that until as recently as the 1800s, public hangings used to take place in the Grassmarket, opposite today’s location of the pub.

Before the invention of the modern Gallows, hangings were a crude affair, just a rope over a tree branch, a barrel to stand on and a stout man to kick the barrel away. The prisoner would be offered a last drop (of whisky_) from the Last Drop (pub_) before suffering a last drop (at the end of a rope).

Taken while out for a pleasant days shooting on a lovely Spring day (8th May 2010) with some other RB members.

The Old and New Towns of Edinburgh are a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
