NORTH FOULIS' CLOSE

The origin of the name is likely to be the apothecary, John Foulis who owned a tenement in the close.

James Gillespie of Spylaw Colinton, who founded the Schools and hospitals bearing his name, had a shop here ran by his brother.

His main line in tobacco and snuff manufacture earned him the reputation of the man that 'put his business into other people's noses'.
