Thank you to Allan Dodds for allowing me to reproduce Photo 1 above, looking across Dundas Street to the shops on the east side of the street, close to the top of the street at Heriot Row.

Photo 2

2011

I took Photo 2 above in Dundas Street today.  I was not able to take it from the same position as Photo 1 - the first floor of No.10 - so I took it from the steps outside No.10.

Most of the architecture looks the same as it did 50 years ago, apart from the small stone balustrade on the top left on Photo 1 that has now been removed.

The businesses appear to have moved up-market:

No.
