Church Hill

Between Bruntsfield and Morningside

Church Hill

Postcard by an unidentified publisher  -  Looking towards Comiston Road and Braid Road, Morningside

Church Hill

The View

I believe that this view probably looks down Morningside Road towards 'Holy Corner', the junction with Colinton Road and Chamberlain Road that had a church on each of its four corners.  Those Church steeples can be seen in the haze in the background on this photo.

Publisher

This card is in a rather reddish-sepia tone.  I don't know the publisher of this post card.  I have only seen the front of the card.  Looking at the back of this card might reveal who the publisher was.

Publisher - Update

Thank you to somebody called Michael for sending me a copy of a postcard with the same photograph as above, but in a different tone and with a different caption.  His card is titled:

"44  MORNINGSIDE ROAD, EDINBURGH    P&WM LTD Copyright"

Date?

When might this photo have been taken?

The only vehicles in this photo are the tram and horse-drawn or hand-drawn vehicles, so the photo may have been taken in the very early 1900s.
