Princes Street Shops

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):

 

2010

1970

1950

93

Vacant

Being Redeveloped *

Littlewoods
Department Store **
 
92

R & T Gibson
Grocers

91

The Balmoral
Restaurant

I believe this is the site where Primark are due to open their clothing store in late-2011

**  No shop was listed at this address in the 1970 edition of the Edinburgh & Leith Post Office Directory.  However, RCAHMS has a photograph of Littlewoods at this address, dated 1970.
