Newhaven houses

This Newhaven close runs parallel to Fishmarket Square, between the Main Street (where I'm standing) to the Harbour. It was in these very same streets and closes that some of the first ever photographs (calotypes) were taken by David Octavius Hill and Robert Adamson, in the 1840s.

Nice photo. It's fun to (try to) find the places on Google Maps. And I found it: http://maps.google.nl/maps?hl=nl&ie=UTF8&ll=55.980525,-3.19514&spn=0.000542,0.001202&t=h&z=20
