17 Danube Street

Imagine a cross between Hyancinth Bucket and Margaret Thatcher draped in expensive furs and thumbing wads of's as close as you're going to get to the madame at the helm of the notorious brothel that plagued the lives of the well-heeled residents of Edinburgh's Stockbridge. Pennie Taylor peels back the wallpaper and delves into the nooks and crannies of her former home at 17 Danube Street to reveal some surprising, scandalous and uplifting stories.
