Princes Street

Looking east from the National Galleries

This photograph appears to have been taken from the roof of the Royal Scottish Academy at the foot of the Mound.

It looks to the east along Princes Street and the National Monument on Calton Hill.

On the left hand side of the picture there seem to be some well dressed pedestrians.  The blinds are open to keep the sun from the shop windows.

Open-top cable cars and horse-drawn vehicles can be seen in Princes Street.

Towards the right of the picture is the Scott Monument with the North British Hotel (now the Balmoral Hotel) behind.

The Nelson Monument just visible on the hill to the left of the hotel beside the National Monument.
