Infirmary Street

Thank you to Steven Oliver for allowing me to reproduce this photo of the cast iron lamp columns in Infirmary Street, Edinburgh.

The View

This view looks to the east down Infirmary Street.

The building straight ahead, at High School Yards, is Edinburgh University's Department of Archaeology, built in 1777 for Edinburgh High School to replace their earlier, but smaller, High School, built in 1578.

In front of High School Yards, Infirmary Street turns to the left and becomes High School Wynd, leading down to Cowgate, opposite Blackfriars Street.

Lamp Posts Restored

"This is one of the lamp posts in Infirmary Street.  Its column is by Falkirk Iron Co.

I took the photograph above in May 2009, not long after new 'teardrop' lanterns had been fitted to the lamp posts in the street.
