One of the sights of Edinburgh, a semi-abandoned furniture store built as a Wild West movie set. You find it in an alley on the north side of Springvalley Gardens, near a small bit of recent infill housing. The store specialised in southwestern-US style pieces, hence the western concept. It is quite brilliantly done, however, so perfectly integrated into the alley that it manages to look appropriate and surreal at the same time. In a superb conceit, the emergency exit to Morningside Library is also the Cantina. Whoever did this was a genius. The store, I understand, was a failure from the start, and there are now some ominous-looking building works going on. See it before it disappears.
