The former

General Post Office

The former GPO at the East End of Princes Street has been converted to offices.  The building now has a new glass-walled interior and the stonework on the outside of the building has been restored.

Here is the western wall, facing onto North Bridge.  The picture was taken, looking up at the building (with its new urns in place at the top of the stonework) from the upper deck of an open-top bus in August 2007.

Many parts of Edinburgh are looking much cleaner, as the heavy deposits of soot have been removed from the buildings.  The air is cleaner now, with little heavy industry and no coal fires.
