St Philip's fire 1998

Postby Bob Jefferson » 05 Dec 2012, 20:30

I posted this on Facebook earlier this evening. It's amateur footage of the fire that destroyed the roof of St Philip's in 1998. Pretty poor from a technical point of view and in need of a good edit (and perhaps a voice over) but interesting none the less.

Rather odd too. James Braidwood clearly isn't the film maker's real name (James Braidwood founded the world's first municipal fire service in Edinburgh in 1824) and he/she only joined YouTube a week ago and then uploaded several fire-related films, all apparently shot by the same person around the same period of time. Hmm...
