This is a picture of a Sedan Chair used by an Edinburgh doctor in the late 17th or early 18th Century in Scotland

The first sedan chairs for public hire in Scotland were introduced to Edinburgh in 1687. Sedan chairs were particularly effective due to the narrow closes and steep hills of Edinburgh's Old Town.

This picture was taken at the National Museum of Scotland, itself located in Edinburgh and well worth a visit.
