looking down Blair Street towards the Gilded Balloon Theatre in
the Cowgate. When this photograph was taken work had just
begun to dismantle these walls on the south side of Cowgate by hand,
working from a platform suspended from a crane.
This photograph was taken on
Friday 20 December. Later the same day, the whole of the
wall in Cowgate seen in this picture (except for the arched
portion at the base) collapsed.
