I’m James Hamilton, a Londoner now living in Edinburgh. I am the Research Principal for the Society of Writers to the Signet, and Administrator for the charity John Watson’s Trust.
This website is an archive of pieces written in the early 2010s concentrating on history, film, photography, art and sound recording 1860-1940.
Previous online projects include a current affairs weblog (now offline, 2004-2006), and the sport history and psychology website www.morethanmindgames.com (2006-2011). I have written for the Times, Signet Magazine, Scottish Archives, The Book of the Old Edinburgh Club and the culture website The Dabbler, and I have guested on programmes for BBC Radio Scotland and Sky One.
