Edinburgh Then and Now charts the city from the nineteenth century, with its smoky Victorian reputation as 'Auld Reekie', to the present day. Using atmospheric archive photography dating back to 1860, it shows the evolution of the city through the Victorian and Edwardian eras, two World Wars and touches on the social changes of the 1960s. Over 70 historic photos of Edinburgh's past are paired with specially commissioned contemporary views take from the same vantage point. It features both old and new parts of the city, plus the port of Leith and the Forth Rail Bridge. At its heart is the Royal Mile and Princes Street featuring John Knox's house. There are historic images of Cowgate, Canongate, Lawnmarket, Grassmarket, Charlotte Square, Holyrood House and the old Holyrood Brewery, now the site of the Scottish Parliament.
