Old Town Houses

The Great Exhibition  -  1886

The Great Exhibition of 1886, held in the Meadows, Edinburgh, included a reproduction of streets with 44 buildings from the Old Town of Edinburgh in the seventeenth century, including:

-  Cardinal Beaton's House

-  The Nether Bow

-  The Tolbooth

It was intended that this part of the Great Exhibition should remain as a permanent feature of The Meadows after the exhibition closed, but planning controls prohibited the any permanent buildings on this site so the old buildings were removed when the exhibition closed.

Photographs of these buildings were produced by Marshall Wane as cabinet prints and cartes de visite.  A couple of decades later, Marshall Wane produced the same images as postcards.
