Calton Jail

Royal High School

This view looks from North Bridge, beside the Carlton Hotel towards:

-   Calton Hill (in the background with observatory and monuments)

-   Calton Prison (centre of picture)

-   Royal High School (centre-right of picture) and

-  the railway lines on the eastern approach to Waverley Station.

This card was posted from Edinburgh to East Newport, Fifeshire on 5 August 1908, with the message:

"We are having a splendid time of it here in Edinburgh.  Yesterday, we went to the Castle, Holyrood and the Exhibition and today we're at Portobello and Calton Hill.  We are going to have a sail across the Forth tomorrow if it keeps fine."
