Editor says, in Gordon Davie's post on Google Groups ~ [article I read about thirty years ago] The Forth Valley, linking the Firths of Forth and Clyde, is the Scottish Channel, dividing the islands of Scotland and England/Wales. "Edinborough" is a small port on England's northern coast - there was a painting of the town with the sea front and harbour roughly where Princes Street is now. Arthur's Seat and Corstorphine Hill are islands. The article concluded by pointing out that the buildings in the painting might look odd - this is because with the sea level much higher, the Netherlands don't exist and so there is no Dutch influence on the architecture. But it isn't all bad news, it went on - there's no Glasgow either! Editorial comments are entered in [light green] typeface.
