View from the Centre of Princes Street

This is one of a series of photos that I took photo on September 16, 2010, the day that the Pope visited Edinburgh.  There was no traffic travelling along Princes Street, but the north side of the street and Princes Street Gardens  were 'out of bounds', so I took these photos looking up to the shops from the centre of the street.

The shops at these addresses have been (left to right):

Thank you to Bryan Gourlay for telling me that I had omitted R Marcus, Furriers, from the 1950 list above.  (I've now added it to the list.)

R Marcus

"I am curious as to why there is no mention of Marcus Fur Shop for 1950, about where USC is now.  It had the Three Bears on top for a few decades.  **

 These bears were removed around 1963. I seem to recall a Salisbury's bag and suitcase outlet there after the demise of fur trading.
