A temporary chalk-based painted mural based on the history of a '12 baker's wives race' from 1661.

The Mercurius Caledonius - one of the earliest recognised newspapers in Scotland – tells of the race between twelve baker’s wives, all the way from Portobello to the top of Arthur’s Seat. The Mercurius said “All of them in a condition which makes violent exertion unsuitable to the female form”. The prize was a hundredweight of Cheese (112lbs), along with Whisky and Rum.

Kate and Elaine are two mural painters with a background in painting and graphic design. They work together to create bespoke hand-painted murals.
