In the heart of Edinburgh - to read the whole article go here.
Taken with the Uniden pocketcam.
The dichotomy between Brodie's respectable fa├žade, and his real nature inspired Robert Louis Stevenson to write The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. Stevenson's father had furniture made by Brodie.
Deacon Brodie is commemorated by a pub of that name on Edinburgh's Royal Mile, on the corner between the Lawnmarket and Bank Street which leads down to The Mound, and an alleyway off the Royal Mile, which contained his family residence, still bears the name "Brodie's Close"
