The story of Edinburgh’s landmarks – part 1

This Thursday is World Heritage Day – all the excuse we need to show off some of the amazing images from our collections. We’ll kick off with a photograph of our city’s most famous landmarks. No prizes for guessing where this is, but what about when the picture was taken?

Edinburgh Castle from the vennel

Was is 1856, 1896 or 1926? (Actually there are no prizes for guessing this either but you can find out the answer, and lots more about our city’s landmarks, on the Our Town Stories site).

More tomorrow!
