Here is a
view looking along Princes Street towards the monuments on Calton Hill,
just visible in the background.
British Hotel is in the centre of the picture. Further to the right,
partially hidden behind the trees, is the Scott Monument.
photograph has been taken from the foot of the Mound, in front of the
National Gallery of Scotland (extreme right).
tramlines, poles and overhead wires are still in place, and traffic lights
have not yet been installed at this junction, leaving the police (rather
casually) to control the traffic.
The photograph has been given a long exposure,
resulting in some blur in the pedestrians and traffic on Princes Street.
