Artist's Description

A stone tower with a spiral stair links Market Street with North Bridge above. This stairway is open to the public, but for over a hundred years was the most direct way from the Scotsman building on North Bridge to the rear entrance to Waverley Station. (The Scotsman is now produced in a modern building near the Scottish Parliament, down at the foot of the Royal Mile.)

Regrettably, the smell most associated with this stairway is urine or disinfectant or a sickening combination of both: for decades, men have used it as a urinal.
