A cafe table where JK Rowling wrote sections of her Harry Potter books has been salvaged from a huge fire, which devastated the building.
… She wrote in The Elephant House cafe in 1996 and 1997, after her first Harry Potter book was published…
The BBC writes:
The blaze on Edinburgh’s George IV Bridge last month badly damaged flats and businesses including The Elephant House cafe.
The cafe’s owner David Taylor said he was “immensely relieved” to find the table used by Rowling among the rubble.
He said the table had suffered water and smoke damage but would be restored.
The Elephant House cafe was one of two used regularly by Rowling when she was writing the stories of the boy wizard in the mid-90s.
She wrote in The Elephant House cafe in 1996 and 1997, after her first Harry Potter book was published, and often sat at the antique wooden table…..
The enduring popularity of the Harry Potter series has led to the Elephant House being a popular stop-off for fans of the series.
