Looking down from the Scott
Transport in 1936
This view looks down
on Waverley Bridge and Waverley Station from the Scott Monument.
The entrance to Waverley Station is in the upper-left corner of
the photo and the junction with Market Street and Cockburn Street
Perhaps somebody will
comment on the locomotives, buses and cars in this photo.
In the thumbnail image
below, taken from the Scott Monument in 2009, we see what appears

bridge, and the Old Town of Edinburgh and Arthur's Seat in
Holyrood Park in the background.
Thank you to Jim Vandepeear for allowing me to reproduce the
photo at the top of this page. This is one of several photos taken in Edinburgh by
Jim's late brother-in-law in 1936.
