This photo is one of several that were taken by Thomas M McGurk, from the top deck of a bus in Princes Street, on June 20, 1959.  There seem to be some reflections from the front window of the bus in the darker areas of the picture.

Ally McGurk who provided this photo writes:

Watching the World Go By!

"You can see part of the Castle rock and the Ross Bandstand in Princes Street Gardens. I love the five old folks squashed together on the bench, watching the world go by. "
