Stereoscopic Views

George Washington  Wilson

List of Views of Edinburgh in Numerical Order

Below is a list of the G W Wilson stereoscopic views of Edinburgh that I have found to date. 

In many cases, the same number was used over many years for different negatives.  In some cases there was only a minor difference in the negatives:  in other cases they were completely different.

Please click on the image below to see thumbnail images of some of these views:
