Transport of (dead) Delight

The things you sometimes just come across on the way home from work. This gorgeous glass and wood, horse-drawn hearse was idling in one of Edinburgh’s streets in the Georgian New Town (it’s only a couple of centuries old – to us that’s still pretty new, thank you). Doesn’t it fit the Georgian streets rather well?

Was I perhaps being a tad macabre and ghoulish snapping some pictures of this stylish mode of transport for the upwardly mobile cadaver? Perhaps, but then I am ghoulish and macabre, so that’s perfectly normal behaviour for me. It would also make a wonderful set of wheels for a classy vamp-about-town methinks.
