This photo comes from the Edinburgh Street Lighting collection of
photos held in the Edinburgh City Archive.
The photo was taken presumably to show the lamp standards in Princes Street, following the removal of the old tram tracks
after the trams stopped running in 1956.
Only one vehicle can be seen
on this stretch of road. Is the road being re-surfaced here
following the lifting of the tram tracks.
This photo was taken in the days before road works were lined with
traffic cones. There appear to be just a few large tin barrels at
intervals separating the lanes of traffic from the roadworks.
