New High School, Calton Hill, from the Canon-gate church yard, Edinburgh
The New Royal High School building on Calton Hill is viewed fron the Canongate graveyard. The High School is built on the lower slopes of Calton Hill in a neoclassical Greek inspired design with many pillars and a central portico as part of its facade. On top of Calton Hill the National Monument and tower of Nelson's Monument can be seen. Below in the Canongate there is a row of houses with smoke coming out of their chimneys. In the graveyard a woman stands with one child in her arms, and another by her side. In front of her on the path is a man carrying a shovel.
