Landscaping the Observatory

Landscaping the Observatory

The photograph shows the landscaping work which is presently being carried out in the grounds of the Calton Hill observatory. Now that the landscaping is nearing completion, residents of Edinburgh with an interest in the city’s history can’t wait to see inside the building where so much important scientific work was carried out. Astronomers and historians with an interest in the history of timekeeping will flocking to the observatory from all over the world when the doors finally open to see the telescopes, clocks and scientific instruments.
