Princes Street

The View

This postcard by Marshall Wane & Co, Edinburgh, in the 'North British Railway Series looks to the east along Princes Street from the Rutland Hotel at the West End of the street.

There is a good mix of traffic here, including a stage coach approaching the fountain (lower-centre) at the junction of Princes Street and Lothian Road.

The building on the right is St John's Church at the West End.


This postcard looks to me to be in the style that was used in the early-1900s.  The shop blinds can be seen to be out along Princes Street at that time, to provide shelter from the sun.
