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 to the SE towards the Scott Monument in Princes Street.   The photo appears to have been taken from an upper floor on one of the buildings on the north side of Princes Street.

To the left of the Scott Monument in this photo are the buildings on the corner of Princes Street and North Bridge that were demolished to allow the North British Railway Hotel to be built.  The hotel opened in 1902.
