The View

This view looks to the east, along Princes Street with its cobbled surface, horse-drawn carriages and cobbled surface.

The large building in pink stone on the left-hand side of the street is Jenners' Department Store

The Postcard

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

This card was posted in 1912, but appears to be part of a series of cards, published a few years earlier, several of which were I have seen with postmarks dated 1904.  Here is another from the series, this one looking along Princes Street towards the Scott Monument from the east.
