Grassmarket & Castle

Lennie sold stereo cards from their shop in Princes Street.  The cards were produced by a variety of photographers.  These photographers were not normally named on the cards.

I have the following stereo views by Lennie in my collection, each bearing a blind stamp that reads:

'Lennie, 46 Princes Street, Edinburgh'.

So far, I have only found the time to add the first two of these to the EdinPhoto web site.

Title: Saint Bernard's Well, Edinburgh

Description:  Is situated on the banks of the Water of Leith, and has  long been distinguished for the medicinal virtues of its waters, which are of the sulphureous kind.

The qualities of this spring falling under the notice of the late Lord Gardenstone, he purchased the property of the well, and erected a beautiful edifice over it.  This temple consists of a temple of columns which are surmounted by a neat dome, in the middle of which is a statue to Hygeia, the goddess of health.
