The View

This view looks to the west along Princes Street, from the newly build North British Railway Hotel, now (2006) The Balmoral Hotel.

Cable cars and horse-drawn carriages can be seen in the street.

The Postcard

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

The card was posted from Glasgow to Co. Waterford in Ireland on July 2, 1904.  The postage cost a halfpenny (about 0.002).

Here is anothe postcard in the series, this one looking along Princes Street from the west towards the Scott Monument
