Castle Street (1983)
Castle Street (1983)
Castle Street long before Councillor, later Professor Begg's anti-congestion traffic measures changed the look of Edinburgh's streets in the 1990s. Some things may have improved since. Take the quality of road surface repairs for example - spot the line of the street's main gas or water pipe? Compare also how the Castle Rock has survived the ages, unlike Northern Rock (extreme left beyond the yellow Metro), which had to be rescued from financial collapse in 2008. The run on the bank was a harbinger of the general banking crisis that resulted in the humiliating taxpayer bail out of the Scottish banking sector leader, The Royal Bank of Scotland.
