‘LIKE good and evil, Glas­gow and Ed­in­burgh are of­ten men­tioned in the same breath but re­garded as ut­terly dis­tinct. The ri­valry be­tween th­ese cities, which is so long­stand­ing that it has be­come prover­bial, sets them along­side other ur­ban cen­tres — Los An­ge­les and San Fran­cisco, Moscow and St Peters­burg, Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo — which like to jockey for supremacy within their na­tion . . . [Glas­gow and Ed­in­burgh] are also ab­surdly close to­gether: only 40 miles [64km] sep­a­rates the two low­land Scot­tish cities.’
