Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh celebrates city’s lost station with new exhibition

1 Min

Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh – The Caledonian has opened a new exhibition giving guests a rare glimpse in to the hotel’s illustrious past as the iconic Princes Street Station.

‘Uncovering Edinburgh’s Lost Station’ captures more than 100 years’ history through 12 images on display in the famous Peacock Alley. Curated by journalist David McLean, who runs local history website ‘Lost Edinburgh’,the collection includes colour photographs of passengers that have never been publicly displayed before alongside rare images of the Queen and Prince Philip on their first official visit to the capital.

“For nearly 100 years Princes Street Station played an integral role in Edinburgh’s history and its existence is often now overlooked. All of the images in the exhibition have a story behind them, rekindling memories and capturing life at the once bustling station.” David McLean, exhibition curator.

'Uncovering Edinburgh's Lost Station' runs from 27 July - 31 August and is available to view at Peacock Alley, Princes Street, Edinburgh, EH1 2AB
