Title
Edinburgh Castle from the Vennel
Description
Edinburgh Castle is in the background for this scene of a narrow downward sloping street, also known as a vennel. Houses are either side of the cobblestone thoroughfare. Stairs lead up to the doorways of some of the slate tiled houses. A handrail is beside the steps. Street lamps are along both sides of the vennel. Washing hangs from a rail outside a window. The sign for the Salvation Army Womens Shelter is just visible.
