This view looks up
Comely Bank Avenue from the southern end of Fettes Avenue, close
to the south-west corner of
The view looks south
towards Dean Park Crescent - the only crescent I know of
that is straight - leading to Queensferry Street
and the West End of Princes Street.
This view looks very
similar today, except that the street is likely to be lined with
parked cars and there are likely to be fewer pedestrians.
There are still shops
on the right hand side of the street, at the junction with Comely

mortar' used for mixing and grinding drugs - no longer
decorates the wall above the shop window.
