Lothian Road

Near Tollcross

This view looks down The Mound towards Princes Street.

This is a colour photograph, though it appears almost monochrome!

Ally McGurk who provided this photo adds:

Cold Grey City

"Gosh, it looks so cold, doesn't it? And it was colder in those days. Edinburgh was a cold, grey city, and you had to watch out not to catch your foot in the tram lines as you crossed the road."

Ally McGurk, May 25, 2007

Thank you to Ally McGurk, daughter of Thomas M McGurk for allowing me to reproduce this photo.  More photos taken by Ally and Thomas can be found on the Flickr web site.
