THE CRYPT DOOR - 1982

"Doors, lead to other doors" ... so sang Billy Mackenzie ... and in the case of the Crypt (Billy's fashion shop in Princes Street) it's quite literally true.
For although this is obviously a photo of Billy at the door of the Crypt...all is not what it seems!
You see, when this photo was taken in May 1982, the shop had changed it's name to "Plan 2" and was now being run by his brother John.
Therefore the image here is of the retained Crypt wrought iron outer door, leading to Plan 2's inner shop door...!!
