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 west along Princes Street towards the monument to the Edinburgh author, Sir Walter Scott.  This view was from the North British Station Hotel, looking over the flower gardens on the roof of the Waverley Market.

Horse-drawn vehicles and shop awnings can be seen along Princes Street on the right-hand side of the picture.
