Thank you to David Gordon, who wrote:

West Bow Shops

"I have been enjoying looking at your latest shop front shots.  A section on antique and collectors' shops would be great for many to view.

Off the top of my head, I can think of these shops in West Bow, all now long gone:

-  Ye Olde Antique Shop (Iris Fox)

-  John Martin

-  Slothberry  Antiques

-  West Bow Antiques

-  Pine and Old Lace

-  Patrick Mcvie

-  Paul Coutts

-  Early technology

-  Greig Linton?

and so on."

Here are a few of my photos of shops in West Bow, at the foot of Victoria Street, taken in the 1990s:

I have already taken photos of several of the shops in West Bow that David mentions above, and many more shops around Edinburgh, between 1990 and 2012.

I don't have time at present to add these to the EdinPhoto web site, but I hope to be able to add them to the site later.
