Biography

‘James Pearson, age 56 of Little King Street, Edinburgh, did not regain consciousness after falling 14 feet. A foreman, J Horne, when giving evidence said that it would have taken a tightrope dancer to get along the girder which was only four inches wide. The jury recorded that a better device was needed for going along girders.’ – G Routledge, Gretna’s Secret War, (Bookcase, 1999) p. 39.
