Postcard

Edinburgh

from Calton Hill

The View

This view looks down from Calton Hill to the west.  The main road, leading straight ahead on the right hand side of the picture is Princes Street, with the North British Hotel (now the Balmoral Hotel) and its tower prominent at the East End of the street.

The Scott Monument is hidden by the North British Hotel.

Edinburgh Castle can be seen in the background on Castle Hill.

Calton Jail, now demolished to make way for the Government offices, St Andrew's House, is in the foreground of the picture (lower left).

The Postcard

This postcard was posted in 1906.  The publisher of the card was the Scottish bookseller and stationer, John Menzies & Co.

This is one  of two postcards that I have seen in this series by the Scottish bookseller and newsagents, John Menzies & Co.
