Artist's Description

Another shot from the recent amazing redbubble meet in Edinburgh, Scotland. This one is from the Saturday session (23rd October 2010).

The remains of a much altered tower windmill stand at the corner of Tower Street and The Shore in Leith. The Shore was the original Port of Leith which serviced the city of Edinburgh.

Original built as a windmill, the 50 foot high Signal Tower was constructed in 1686 by Master Mason Robert Mylne of Balfargie (1633 – 1710). In 1805, its domed roof and sails were removed and it was topped with a battlemented parapet from which flags were flown to signal ships in the port. The base of the building is now Fishers in Leith.

The Signal Tower is an Historic Scotland Category A Listed Building (HB Number 27884).
