Royal Mile and Canongate Tolbooth

Thank you to Phil Wilson, formerly of Edinburgh and now living in Aberdeen, Scotland, for allowing me to reproduce his photograph looking down the Canongate (part of Edinburgh's Royal Mile) towards the Canongate Tolbooth with its clock high above the pavement.

This photo, taken in 1963, shows an interesting collection of parked vehicles, typical of the 1960s, but no other traffic in the street.

Canongate kirk and kirkyard  lies behind the railings in the distance, on the left-hand side of the road.
