Princes Street

This view looks to the West along Princes Street from the Scott Monument.  

In the early days, Edinburgh had cable trams, and when the cable broke all the trams came to a halt.  Here at a later date, in 1952, the trams have again come to a halt.

The buildings on the north side of Princes Street, on the right-hand side of this photo housed many of Edinburgh's photographic studios in the 19th century.
