This view was taken by Norward
Inglis, in the early 1950s. It looks along Princes Street towards:
- Edinburgh Castle (top-left corner)
- Caledonian Hotel, Lothian Road (upper-centre)
- Corstorphine Hotel (upper-right)
- Royal Scottish Academy (centre of picture).
I found it interesting to see the row of cars parked in in beside the
Royal Scottish Academy, with what appears to be many vacant places, within
a few yards of Princes Street. It was to be about another decade
before parking meters were introduced into Edinburgh.
