Holyrood from Calton Hill

George Washington Wilson

George Washington Wilson of Aberdeen, like James Valentine of Dundee, produced a very large number of views of Scotland in the 19th century.  Both companies sold their prints individually and mounted into albums.

The image below is taken from an albumen print, approx 8 ins x 5.25 ins. The title of the photograph is Holyrood Palace & Arthur's Seat.

The photograph [No.202GWW.] was one of the earliest of George Washington Wilson's photos.  I have not yet discovered the date when it was taken.

The picture shows Holyrood Abbey (left) with Holyrood Palace beside it (right), with Calton Hill in Queen's Park in the background.
