The photo was taken in 1959, but some of the cars in this view are a little older!

This photo is one of several that were taken by Thomas M McGurk in Princes Street, on June 20, 1959, three years after the trams in Princes Street had been replaced by buses.

Gardens and Building

"East Princes St Gardens to the left, and the Art Galleries. That fine old building on the right is long gone"
