The View

The two photos above are of the Lawnmarket, part of Edinburgh's Royal Mile.  These photos were both taken from beside Tollbooth St John's church, now The Hub.

-  The first photo is one half of a stereo view by Keystone View Company

-  The second photo is one that I took in July, 2011

Comparison

CENTRE-LEFT:    The buildings in the centre-left of both photos match.  These include are on the north side of Lawnmarket.

CENTRE-RIGHT:  The furnishers' building in the centre-right on the early photo is in the Royal Mile, just beyond the junction with  Bank Street.

In the  2011 photo, it can be seen to have been replaced by the Sheriff Courthouse, built 1934-37, just beyond the two open-top tour buses parked in the Royal Mile.

TOP RIGHT:        The building in the top-right corner on both photos is on the corner of Lawnmarket and Johnston Terrace.

The edge of St Giles Church in High Street is peeping out on the left of this building.
