Princes Street and the Balmoral Hotel

2006

This view looks along Princes Street towards the Balmoral Hotel, formerly the North British Hotel, and the monuments on Calton Hill. 

The photograph was taken from upstairs on a No 10 bus, as it passed the Scott Monument in Princes Street on a fine day in March 2006.

Here is a view taken from a balcony immediately to the left (off the picture) by George Washington Wilson in 1860, about 40 years before the North British Hotel was built:
