Princes Street and Royal Institution

looking east

Here is a view looking to the east along Princes Street.  There is an interesting mix of traffic to be seen in the street.  The following buildings also appear in the picture (from left to right):

-  The north side of Princes Street

National Monument and Nelson Monument  in the distance on Calton Hill.

North British Hotel, Scott Monument and Royal Institution, all on Princes Street.

This card was posted from Edinburgh to Macduff on 15 September 1903.  It would be interesting to know what place is under discussion.  The message reads:

"Many thanks for interesting views of the Great Unknown.  It is quite a surprise to us that there are some stone houses there.  I hope you are having a very good time."
