Temporary Plaque to Margaret Tait

Dedicated to: 
Inscription: 

Margaret Tait
1918-1999
FILMMAKER & POET
Edinburgh played a very important role in Margaret Tait's life and work. She was sent to Edinburgh for boarding in the 1940s, obtained a degree in medicing from the University of Edinburgh in 1941, and later established her film studio on Edinburgh's Rose Street. Several of her films feature Edinburgh as a subject. She also wrote at some length in her diaries about her experiences of living in the city. In many ways, Edinburgh served as Tait's muse
16 August, 1976: 'I used to like an 8 a.m. walk through Princes Street gardens - a mistry air of expectancy on a sunny morning, with a few visitors off the early trains looking dazed'.

Additional information: 

There are also temporary plaques at Milne's Bar and Rose Street in Edinburgh, as well as a croft at West Aith on Orkney - with the hope that they will all be made permanent. There will be a memorial in St Magnus Cathedral, the first woman in Poet's Corner there.
