By the time that
this photo was taken, in March 2006, most of the houses in Niddrie
Mains Drive had been demolished. There were still houses
standing, many now unoccupied in some of the surrounding streets
on the south side of Niddrie Mains Drive.
This view looks
to the NW towards the old building, with Arthur's Seat in Holyrood
Park hidden behind it.
The sky was
beginning to brighten again as this photo was taken, following the
mist and rain that had passed over a few minutes earlier.
