The Book

Thank you to Peter Grootes, Best, The Netherlands for allowing me to reproduce photos from his book,

'Photograph from View Album of Edinburgh and District'

published by Patrick Thomson, Cash Drapery Store, North Bridge, Edinburgh, around the 1890s.    Here are a few more photos from the same book.

The View

This view looks across the Firth of Forth from  Queensferry towards North Queensferry.  The photo may have been taken just a few years after the bridge was opened.  It opened in 1890.

I think the photo is well composed, , showing the ferry crossing the Forth and a steam train heading to the south towards Edinburgh.

Here is another photo of the Forth Bridge, with some of the houses of Queensferry in the foreground.  This photo also appeared in the book:
