The Scott Monument from Princes Street Gardens

View 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.

26 - 46 Princes Street

The low buildings immediately to the right of the Scott Monument in the B W Kilburn view above are 40-42 Princes Street, the Sun Fire Office which features in G W Wilson's instantaneous views of Princes Street (c.1860).

43 - 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.
