Keeping Shop

Fiona Hermse

2019 Heritage Place

An event based project held in Rosefield Park styled around a treasure hunt celebrating many of the old high street shops of Portobello, and the Victorian Splash events which once took place in Portobello in the 1980s organised by local shopkeepers.

A series of stories about local shops were hidden in old shop tins displayed around the park with handmade badges, portrait polaroid photos and more as prizes for local young participants. 

The project was supported by funding from City of Edinburgh Council’s Neighbourhood Fund.
