Sketches in Pencil  -  David Octavius Hill  RSA

Calton Hill

David Octavius Hill worked in partnership with with Robert Adamson.  Their studio was at Rock House at the base of Calton Hill, close to the position of the house gable end in the centre of this sketch. 

This view from the top of Calton Hill looks to the west along Princes Street.  The houses on the north (right hand) side of Princes Street in this view were to house many of Edinburgh's early photographic studios in the mid 19th century.

The Dugald Stewart Monument is prominent in the foreground centre-right.
