Scots Corner -The Royal Yacht Britannia, Leith



Sometimes you see the most interesting things. This is one of the internal phones on The Royal Yacht Britannia. I love old phones, they have such character and ambience. If I had space at our house I would probably start a collection. Mmmmm. Maybe I should draw up a design for a wall hanging.
The exhibition leading up to the ship is fascinating and I highly recommend it. The self guided tour round the ship takes a while and gives a wonderful glimpse into what was a working royal yacht. Very different to a lot of the pomp and circumstance surrounding the land dwellings.

This is a wonderful old phone and I think a quilt with these on it would be great. Great idea. Steph
