Looks like a roof terrace of some sort. Curious!

This was the New Street premises of Scottish Motor Traction which later became known as Scottish Omnibuses and latterly Eastern Scottish. It was the company's head office and Edinburgh Depot. I worked in the head office during the very hot summer of 1975. As I recall there was a separate exit and entrance onto New Street, use being made of the hillside location. There was a steep climb up to the Royal Mile.

Although on a busy corner, a lot of people just walk past the Black Watch memorial.

Edinburgh's electric street trams mostly ran between 1922 and November 1956. A new light rail transit system or tramway is expected to open in 2014, after years of gestation, linking Edinburgh airport with Princes Street and Leith. It will be a single route, longer but much less elaborate than the city's mid-twentieth century system
