Baldwin Brown Images of Old Edinburgh

The Digital Imaging Unit have another five images from the Baldwin Brown glass plate negatives of Old Edinburgh recently digitized by the DIU. One of the images has an intriguing figure who appears in two of the images. I have included a close up from one of the images to highlight the shop he is standing in front of. We have had some great feedback on this set of Baldwin Brown images. The comments and observations have provided a fascinating insight on Edinburgh.

    One of your earlier images from your first batch is The Pleasance. Numbers approx 139 – approx 133. These are small buildings running to the corner of East Richmond Street. The top left corner shows the rear of the tenement situated on the corner of East Richmond Street and South Richmond Street. The wooden shuttering on the right hand side could be part of the construction site of the Lady Grisell Baillie Memorial Hospital opened in 1894 later renamed the Deaconess Hospital
