With its tall tenement houses and steep slopes of the Old Town to the broad expanses and elegant steets of the New Town, the city justly deserves its title of Athens of the North.

Surrounded by beautiful hills the city has long been a major tourist attraction. Around 100 photographs of Edinburgh from the mid-nineteenth century onwards, all selected from the Francis Frith Archive, accompanied with informative and elightening text. Contents: Introduction - Francis Frith; Linlithgow; Queensferry; Newhaven; Edinburgh; Roslin; Hawthornden; North Berwick; Whitekirk; Blackburn.
