Custom House, Leith
The Custom House in Edinburgh stands beside the Water of Leith. It is a large stone building with decorative moulding around the upper part of the walls and an impressive entranceway supported by columns. There is a heraldic emblem within the pediment above the entrance. In the foreground, a stone bridge crosses the river and a couple of rowing boats travel under the bridge's arches. There are many smartly dressed people in hats walking across the bridge and several of them have stopped to look at the view over the water.
