This view looks to the east along
Princes Street. The buildings in the distance in the
centre of this picture are:
- Nelson Monument on Calton Hill
- Clock Tower of the North British
Hotel (now Balmoral Hotel)
- Sir Walter Scott Monument
The building on the right
of the picture is the Royal Scottish Academy (now part of the National Galleries
of Scotland) surmounted by a seated Queen Victoria, looking to
the north up Hanover Street.
There is a charabanc, heading to the
west along Princes Street. It is passing behind a queue
at one of the tram stops in this picture.
