Day 239 Glass & Thomson (Photo A Day 2012)


This is Glass and Thompson deli at 2 Dundas Street Edinburgh. It is in Glass and Thompson where Domenica McDonald embarrasses Pat MacGregor by inviting a handsome waiter around for tea to discuss the poetry of Rupert Brooke in Espresso Tales . Apparently if you ask the proprietor Russell Glass nicely he might show you the copy of Alexander McCall Smith’s novel The Forgotten Affairs of Youth he keeps behind the counter, the one in which Russell himself and his café make a cameo appearance on page 173.
