Scott Monument

and

Princes Street

The View

This view looks to the east, through East Princes Street Gardens from a point close to the National Galleries at the foot of the Mound.  The statue in the distance is Sir Walter Scott beneath the Scott Monument.

The Postcard

This postcard is part of the "National" series.  I don't know the publisher.

The card has not been posted, but appears to be part of a same series of cards, several of which I have seen with postmarks dated 1904.  Here is another from the series, this one looking towards the Scott Monument from the east.
