Edinburgh Suburban And Southside Junction Railway
The Edinburgh Suburban and Southside Junction Railway (also known as the Edinburgh Suburban Line) was a railway company that built an east-west railway on the southern margin of Edinburgh, Scotland, primarily to facilitate the operation of heavy goods and mineral traffic across the city. The line opened in 1884. Although its route was rural at the time, suburban development quickly caught up and passenger carryings on the line were buoyant; the passenger service operated on a circular basis through Edinburgh Waverley railway station. Bus and tram competition hit the passenger service badly as the twentieth century progressed, and in 1962 the line closed to local passenger trains

Fernand Léger
Joseph Fernand Henri Léger (French: [leʒe]; February 4, 1881 – August 17, 1955) was a French painter, sculptor, and filmmaker. In his early works he created a personal form of cubism which he gradually modified into a more figurative, populist style. His boldly simplified treatment of modern subject matter has caused him to be regarded as a forerunner of pop art.Contents1 Biography1.1 1909–1914 1.2 1914–1920 1.3 1920s 1.4 1930s 1.5 The War years 1.6 1950s2 Legacy 3 Gallery 4 References and sources 5 External linksBiography[edit] Léger was born in Argentan, Orne, Lower Normandy, where his father raised cattle.
