The Manhattan

Around 1960

Thank you to Al Lorentzen for allowing me to reproduce this photograph of The Manhattan, taken around 1960.  The Manhattan was near the West End of Princes Street.  The car on the left in this photo is a Morris Minor.

The Monseigneur Theatre, with The Manhattan below it, was at 131 Princes Street.

The shop next door on the right, at No 130, with the Royal Coat of Arms (by Appointment to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth)  is Jamieson & Sons, fruiterers.


Now (in 2010), Gap clothing store is at 131 Princes Street, and HMV CD and Record store is next door at 130 Princes Street.
