Edition 101

Why The Darting Salamander? Well, that would be telling… you will find answers inside the book.

But here’s one: Salamander Street, Leith. The only street of this name in the UK, probably named because of the many fiery and toxic glass and chemical works on the north side two hundred years ago. Within living memory, known as The Street of a Thousand Smells.

In legend salamanders can withstand the heat of fire, and there’s more…in Leith ‘a new tail grows’
