Princes Street

Location

This photograph by Norward Inglis looks to the east  along Princes Street, from Princes Street at the foot of The Mound (out of picture on the right).

Procession

A procession approaches Hanover Street.  I have not discovered the occasion or the year, other than that it is likely to have been in the early-1950s.

The Lord Provost is taking the salute from his stand at the foot of Hanover Street.

Spectators have a good view of the procession from the restaurant and balconies of the building on the corner of Princes Street and Hanover Street. 

Good views are still possible from the restaurant.  It recently became a  'Costa Coffee'.   I expect that 'Health & Safety Dept' would might have concerns about the positions of some of the 1950s spectators.

Studios

The building on the corner of Hanover Street and Princes Street housed the studios of many of Edinburgh's photographers between mid-1800s and mid-1900s.  These included:
