View from the Crown of
Thank you to Maurice McIlwrick for sending me the photograph
"This old picture from the roof of St
Giles, I think, came from a newspaper - possibly 'The Scotsman'.
The Sheriff Court Building as it used to
be (towards the right-hand side of this photo) was opened about 1935
and was only under construction when the photo was taken.
I went up to the tower looking for the
spot and found it! What amazed me was the phone box in both pictures
at the same place!"
