Fettes Row

Fettes Row is one of the streets that crosses Dundas Street about half a mile to the north of Princes Street.  It lies on the northern edge of Edinburgh New Town.

Fettes Row

Thank you to John Knight for sending me six photos taken in the 1970s before conservation work really got underway in Fettes Row and before the  new developments were built to the north of Fettes Row.

The photo above is one of these photos.

"This view looks to the SE towards houses on the south side of Fettes Row, to the east of Dundas Street.  Dundas Street is in the foreground.

It gives some idea of what the northern frontage of the New Town must have looked like before industry took over in Canonmills/Silvermills in the mid-1800s."
