A west view of Edinburgh taken from the Scott Monument
A west view of Edinburgh taken from the Scott Monument shortly after it opened in the 1840's. The watercolour has been given a very precise date and time, clearly the artist thought the event captured was significant. The watercolour is showing a parade west of the Royal Scottish Academy. The scene is a parade of red coated soldiers arriving at the Mound.
The National Gallery of Scotalnd has not yet been built, and now stands in the area above the railway tunnel.
