Foot of The Mound

The open space above, between East Princes Street Gardens (left) and the National Galleries of Scotland (right) has been a meeting place for many decades.  In recent years, it has been a popular location for street artists, each August during the Edinburgh Festival.

Here, a crowd has gathered around a clergyman

The photograph has been taken from an upper floor in one of the buildings on the south side of Princes Street, at or close to No.75 Princes Street, the studio address of many Edinburgh photographers between 1848 and 1946.

I do not know the date of this photograph.
