from the South
Views of the Scott Monument were usually
taken from the east or west, looking along Princes Street, but here is
one from the south, looking across Princes Street Gardens. It
gives a good view of the buildings on the north side of Princes
Street, close to the Scott Monument.
46 Princes Street
The corner of Princes Street and South St
David Street (where Lennie's Opticians were based for many years) became the Old Waverley Hotel -
6-storeys high. This is hidden behind the Scott Monument in the
Kilburn view above, but had not yet been built when G W Wilson took
his stereo view at the foot of this page.
