Edinburgh's Most Famous Native Son

Dateline: Edinburgh, Scotland

Grave of Adam Smith

Who knew that Edinburgh's most famous native son was Adam Smith? Even more interesting, the grave of the father of modern free-market capitalism is behind a museum dedicated to the proletariat! The exhibitions in the museum trace the conditions of the working class through the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries.

  1. The irony! Beautiful example of intentional architectural site selection.
