Walk in the sun at Princes Street Gardens

29th August 1939

About this memory

My Great Aunt Barbara and her friends smile at the camera whilst out for a walk in Princes Street Gardens. You can see all the shops on Princes Street that were replaced in the 1960s (only the Romanes & Patterson building on far left and Jenners on far right remains). This photo was taken 6 days before Britain entered the Second World War which would see my aunt having to move to London for war work.
