In Jack’s place, we have another treat lined up for you for the next handful of Wednesdays. Starting today, courtesy of publishing guru Cally Phillips, we’ll be McSerialising excerpts from J. M. Barrie’s An Edinburgh Eleven, which Barrie described as pencil portraits of prominent people in Edinburgh when he was a student.
His portrait today is that of Lord Rosebery, who really was labelled Uncrowned King of Scotland at one time. Jings, crivens, help ma Boab! How Scottish politics have changed since the late nineteenth century! Definitely worth a read.
