Inverleith Terrace is about a mile to the
north of the centre of Edinburgh. It runs
along the southern
edge of Edinburgh's Royal Botanic Gardens.

No 35 is the nearest house

Penny is the 2nd great grand-niece of James Lindsay who
built the house.
Looking to the east
along Inverleith Terrace
photograph above looks to the east along Inverleith Terrace from the western
end of the street. The house in the foreground is 35 Inverleith
Terrace. The photo was taken probably in the early 1900s, soon after the
house had been built.
Penny tells me that the photo above was
published as a postcard but there was no name of the
photographer or of the publisher on the postcard, and there is no stamp on
her copy of the card.
However the card has a 'divided back', one half to be
used for the message and the other for the address, so it must have been
published in 1902 or later.

Here is the other photo.
Here is how the house looked
about a century later, in 2010:
