Capital Collections

From the Edinburgh City Libraries website comes news of Capital Collections, “an exciting website giving online access to some of the amazing and unique prints including photographs, engravings and drawings held by Edinburgh City Libraries.”

As a resident of Leith, which has been undergoing insane roadworks to install an unwanted tram network for 2 years now, and facing another 3 years of them before completion in 2011, this photo is pretty topical right now. It certainly feels like they’ve been messing with the roads non-stop since this photo was taken in 1904!
