Calton Hill

Postcard

Here is an early photograph in the Castle Series, possibly dating from around 1900.  The card has not been sent through the post.

The card has an undivided back, dating from the time when only the address but no message could be written on the back of the card.

The View

This view looks to the east along Waterloo Place towards the monuments and observatory on Calton Hill.  This view is from one of the high buildings close to the East End of Princes Street or the western end of Waterloo Place.
