Looking East towards Calton Hill

from

 The Scott Monument

This view, looking east from the Scott Monument is one half of a stereo pair.  The view is from the same position as other photos on this web site, but has been taken with a longer lens.

Some of the buildings in this image appear to have been painted lighter.  This may be helpful in dating the photos, though all are believed to have been taken around the late 1850s.
