Old Photograph Abbeymount Edinburgh Scotland

Old photograph of shops on Abbeymount in Edinburgh, Scotland. This is one of the older parts of the city, taking its name from Holyrood Abbey, a major historic religious site. The main east-west thoroughfare through the area is London Road, laid in the 1820s as part of the Calton development of the New Town. This superseded an older road to Haddington which still skirts the north side of the King's Park, now officially named Holyrood Park.
