My father used to tell me about the red lady and that when he was a youngster he was employed to keep her pristine.

He would be shocked if he saw her now.

I went searching for the red lady this weekend, chasing memories of holidays spent with my granny and grampaw in Broughton Road as a child. We too were terrified of the lady still "breathing" in her tomb. (The strange effect was caused by the trees moving overhead and changing the lighting over the strangely realistic colouring of the lady). I was devastated to discover what had become of her, but so grateful that there was at least something left to see, and touched also to see the fresh flowers that were laid on her final resting place.
So thanks for this lovely photograph to remind me!

Lee, I'm assuming this photo is of the 'Red Lady' - the tomb with the now vandalised ruby glass.When I was a wee girl at Broughton Primary, just across the park, urban legend had it that she paddled in the Water of Leith (Puddocky ) every night at midnight. Scared us half to death !! Thanks for the photo - old habits die hard ( pardon these puns ) and I've always been too scared to go into the cemetery to have a look at her !!
