Buildings in the Old Town
The north side of Wardrops Court, seen through a window of Lady Stair's House.

"The Old Town is built upon both slopes of a hill, along the crest of which runs the High Street. Out of the High Street there open downwards multitudes of narrow, crooked alleys, called wynds from their many turnings, and these wynds form the proletarian district of the city. The houses of the Scotch cities, in general, are five or six-storied buildings, like those of Paris, and in contrast with England where, so far as possible, each family has a separate house. The crowding of human beings upon a limited area is thus intensified." -- Frederick Engels, The Condition of the Working-Class in England in 1844
