Tour Bus at Waverley Bridge

Here is an open-top tour bus, an ex-London Transport Routemaster,  with a full load of passengers on the upper deck.  The photograph was taken at Waverley Bridge in April 2003.

This view looks to the west across Princes Street Gardens.  The buildings of the skyline are, from left  to right:

-  Head Office of Bank of Scotland

-  Camera Obscura (very small in this view:  white with dark dome)

-  Free Church of Scotland Buildings, Bank Street (dark, with spires)

-  Ramsay Garden (white, pink roofs)

-  Edinburgh Castle (mostly hidden behind the large tree).

There are a surprising number of people sunbathing in East Princes Street Garden, considering that the photograph was taken in April.
