Try to find the spot where the photographer was standing.
This brought such a smile to my face! I'd love to see it beside a shot from exactly the same spot now.
Wow. Presumably that's Calton Gaol in the foreground?
Closest modern shot I could find through a cursory Flickr search is this.
This photograph has been discussed in the Flickr Commons group in Edinburgh: Then & Now This is the shot that gave me the inspiration to do the project : )
Very well done mate - thanks for taking the time and effort.
Hi, this photo was used in a Then and Now project about Edinburgh in the Flickr Commons group, and we'd love to have this added to the group!
