Princes Street

Inglis  -  c.1900

This is one of many photographs taken by Inglis from the North British Hotel looking towards the Scott Monument

Looking West
c. 1940    

   Princes Street  -  Looking West from NB Hotel  -  c.1940

The two views are very similar except for the transport in Princes Street.

Inglis  also took photographs in the other direction  -  looking from the Scott Monument towards the North British Hotel.

Looking East
c.1912    

Princes Street  -  Looking East from Scott Monument  -  1912

The Inglis family was based at Rock House, Calton Hill, the studio used in the 1840s by Hill & Adamson.

I don't know which of the Inglis family took each of the photos in this series.
