Regent Bridge

Regent Bridge, in the centre of this photo, takes Waterloo Place across Calton Road.

Waterloo Place leads to the east from the East End of Princes Street, and passes beneath the southern slopes of Calton Hill.

Calton Road is the old road from Leith Street to Low Calton, where Trinity Church could be found before it was demolished to allow the railway into Waverley Station to be built. 

I was not able to take a photo showing the whole arch of Regent Bridge, as appears in the engraving of 1829, due to the building material being stored under the bridge in connection with the rebuilding of the GPO.
