Edinburgh’s Olympic Parade in pictures

As the Olympic Parade made its way through Edinburgh on Sunday we were on hand to get a few pictures for our Capital Collections archive.

Despite the rain there was a great turnout of an estimated 30,000 people.  The parade started at the City Chambers where six-time gold medallist Sir Chris Hoy was joined on the golden bus by Olympians David Florence, Lynsey Sharp, Josh Taylor, Euan Burton, Chris Sherrington, Sally Conway and Sarah Clark, and by Paralympians Jim Anderson, Sean Fraser and Sam Ingram.

The parade carried on down The Mound and on to a ceremony at  the newly refurbished Assembly Rooms on George Street where Sir Chris Hoy was awarded the Freedom of the City.
