This view looks to the east through the Stevenson & Cheyne engineering works.

The scene looks very green because of the old fluorescent lighting used to illuminate much of the works.  Adding a filter to remove the green cast was not very successful as it introduced an 'artificial' tints to areas that were lit by daylight.

Here is the sepia image:
