Photographer's Note

The Canongate-of old the Court-end of Edinburgh takes its name from the Augustine monks of Holyrood, who were permitted to build it by the charter of David I. in 1128, and to rule it as a burgh of regality. "The canons," says Chalmers, " were empowered to settle here a village, and from them the street of this settlement was called the Canongate, from the Saxon gaet or street, according to the practice of the twelfth and thir-teenth centuries in Scotland and England.
