North Bridge and Calton Hill

This is a wood-cut engraving, from a drawing by Sir John Carr, published in 1809.

-    This view looks to the east from a position that would now be about at the junction of The Mound and Market Street.  It looks across towards the North Bridge and Calton Hill, before the Nelson Monument and National Monument were built on the hill.  

-   The building at the right of the picture is the Head Office of the Bank of Scotland.

-   The open area in the centre of the picture is now part of Edinburgh Waverley railway station.

-   The Old North Bridge was built 1767-1772
