Audience at the Ross
Princes Street in the Background
Reproduced with acknowledgement to Nigel
Baxter, Boston, Lincolnshire, England
Date of the Photo?
Thank you to Nigel Baxter for allowing me to
reproduce the photograph above of a large crowd
at the Ross Bandstand in West Princes Street Gardens.
The photo is not dated, but I
think it may have been taken some time around the 1950s.
Here is another photograph of the audience at the Ross
Bandstand, all still seated when the photo was taken. The shops and
tea-room on the south side of Princes Street can be seen in this photo.
photos may have been
taken on the same occasion. Both come
from medium format negatives that Nigel acquired as a 'job lot' in
an auction following a house clearance.
