New Street runs to the north
down the hill from Canongate, part of the Royal Mile, to Calton Road at
the bottom of the valley below. New Street is the western border of
Calton Hill can be seen in the background.
The large brick building on
the right is the former SMT bus depot.
Just visible on the left of
this photo is scaffolding on the corner of New Street and East Market
Street, the site where the new offices for Edinburgh City Council are
nearing completion in 2004.
