Allan Ramsay’s House

Sian keeps reminding that I need to make more clear [a priori set out] the context of my thoughts!

This film is based on the first Edinburgh home of Allan Ramsay. His children were all born here, including his son, namesake, and portrait artist.

Following the Ramsay family, 153 High Street was divided and became commercial outlets.

153 High Street, Edinburgh was demolished in 1899.
