Out and About: Edinburgh City Centre


Johnnie Walker passing Johnnie Walker! Tram 267, which carries the wrap for the Johnnie Walker Princes Street attraction, is seen passing the actual building itself, heading for York Place. The attraction opened on 6th September 2021. The building was the former Binns (later Frasers) department store built in the 1930s. It closed in 2018. On the right. on the corner of Lothian Road, is St John’s Episcopal Church, dating from 1816-18. From 1925-1955, trams used to be able to branch off to the left here (towards the blue, former police box and into Hope Street) to reach the George Street line, built to relieve Princes Street.
