The scenes above is from the Old Edinburgh Exhibit in the
International Exhibition of Science & Art held at the Meadows,
Marshall Wane had
exclusive rights to take photographs in this part of the 1886
exhibition. The buildings had been specially erected for the
exhibition as an example of life in earlier times in Edinburgh. It
was hoped that these buildings could remain after the exhibition closed,
but planning consent was not granted so they were taken down.
The picture above is of a reconstruction of a booth in the Old Town
of Edinburgh. I don't know where this booth was situated.
Cartes de Visite - Cabinet Prints
The Old Edinburgh scenes above from the 1886
exhibition were first published by Marshall as Cabinet Prints and Cartes

examples of these.
These views were later
published as postcards. I believer that there are several series
of postcards, each comprising probably about 8 or 12 views.
This is one of two post cards I have that was posted on 22 Feb 1906
from East London to South Africa (for a penny). Here is the other:
