Logo.jpg Edinburgh: Checkmate Pawn



A shop old enough to sport three gold balls embossing a wooden sign also sports graffiti on its worn bricks dating to the 18th century. Bars crawl in diamond lattices over tiny windows from a time when glass was an unnecessary expense. Soot and dust darken the storefront, dimming a view of forgotten fads and mysterious goods contained within. Uneven bricks meander past display cases that hold the commercial history of the Empire: china sets and military medals are beside jewelry, whisky bottles, and fancy lighters. Ancient records, dusty instruments, and vintage crap rise like the Red Sea around a long counter containing unsorted electronics and imports, described under hand-written signs. Dangling tags scored by spidery ink gives some identification in cryptic abbreviations and shorthand, more confusing than helpful. A fan stirs musty air no matter the season, aided by a heating system prone to howling and groaning like a caged beast.
