Edinburgh Castle and National Gallery

This view would have been taken from high up on The Scott Monument.
The view looks very similar today, over a century later.

Edinburgh Castle from Esplanade

This view looks as if it would have been taken from high up in Ramsay Garden at the NE corner of the Edplanade.
The view looks very in winter today.  In summer the esplanade is covered with stands for the Edinburgh Tattoo.

The building in the foreground, Calton Jail, was demolished in the 1930s to make way for St Andrew's House
The remainder of this scene looks very similar today.
