Edinburgh taxis - Mary King's Close
The first in an occasional series about Edinburgh's taxis. They're the traditional London black cab, but carrying a variety of advertising, some more interesting than others. This one is advertising what is now a tourist attraction - a series of narrow, 17th century streets (closes) beneath the Old Town of Edinburgh. In the 1750's a new building, now the City Chambers, was built over these old streets, and for many years they were a forgotten archaeological curiosity, until tourism revived them.
