Gladstone’s Land

Gladstone's Land

About this memory

The early 17th Century was the heyday of Gladstone’s Land. Wealthy merchants, John Riddoch and Margaret Nobel, lived and worked here in 1632. They ran a shop on the ground floor and a tavern in the basement.
The expensive furniture and decoration of their apartment demonstrated their wealth.
