Canongate Tolbooth

The View

This scene include an interesting collection of transport, animals and pedestrians on the Canongate - with its small lamp posts and cobbled surface.

This view looks up the Canongate towards Edinburgh Castle.

The Postcard

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

The card was posted to Lauder in the Scottish Borders in 1904.  The buildings look very much the same today, over a century later, with the Tollbooth on the right and Museum of Edinburgh on the left, but the transport and pedestrians in the street have changed.
