Old Town
and Waverley Bridge

This view looking towards the Old Town of Edinburgh with its tall buildings has lots of detail and character.  

Waverley Bridge is a prominent feature, crossing the railway with its small trucks. 

There appears to be a greenhouse in the left foreground.  On early maps of central Edinburgh, this area was shown as Cleghorn's Nursery.

This is a continuation to the left of the Old Town and Bank of Scotland photo.  The top of St Giles Cathedral can be seen, indistinctly, on the skyline in both photos.
