    Does anyone know the origin of the "M&G" inscription on some buildings in Marchmont?.

    Perhaps the initials of the architect?

    I think the cat thing can be found on a few buildings in the city. It was a sign put there by the architect whose name I can't remember but was a famous architect of the time.
    Patrick Geddes, who was responsible for Ramsay Gardens put it there, although it's thought that it started life as a scary devil/demon thing and has since been worn into a cat shape by the weather.
