West End

This part of the New Town of Edinburgh is immediately to the west of the West End of Princes Street.  It was under construction at the time the 1844 map was produced.

Comparison of the 1925 map and the 2001 aerial view show how little has changed over this period.

The Water of Leith can be seen winding its way through Dean Village at the upper left of this area.
