Here is view of pedestrians, horses and carts and a cyclist in George
Street. The photograph is taken from a short distance to the west of the junction of George Street
and Hanover Street. The view looks to the east, towards:
- The statue of King George IV, to commemorate his visit to
Scotland in 1722 at the junction with Hanover Street.
Andrew's & St George's Church, just beyond the George Hotel on the
left hand side of the street.
- The Melville Monument in the centre of
Square at the East End of George Street.
The statue of George IV, the Melville Monument and many of the
buildings still look very much the same today.
