Edinburgh is a city full of colour and history.
From the Castle at the top of the Royal Mile to the Queen's residence at the Palace of Holyroodhouse at the bottom, the city has a clear link to Scotland's past.
But some parts of the city are significantly different to decades ago, and one blogger from Canada has made it his goal to document these changes
Budding historian and Vancouver resident Andrew Farris has traveled from his homeland to Japan and the United Kingdom for his blog 'On This Spot', with his most recent adventure bringing him to Scotland's capital last month.
Completed in 1787, the Assembly Rooms was one of the centrepieces of the New Town. It was captured here in 1820.
Very little has changed in the castle layout since this painting was made in 1929, however the surrounding location has modernised.
After the 1955 fire at the C & A Modes department store on Princes Street, it had to be demolished. There's an H&M store there now.
Now Hillside Crescent Gardens, this spot once held the Gayfield Square School for Girls captured here in 1865.
Scott Monument on Princes Street has barely changed since this was captured in 1890.
Always a bustling shopping street, Princes Street in the heart of the city once played host to a parade of British sailors during Allies Week in 1942.
Andrew, who's mother was born in Glasgow before emigrating to Canada in the 1950s, spoke about his blog and the city's historic past.
He said: "The study of history has always been my biggest passion in life and I've been planning my life around traveling the world and indulging that passion.
"Since I have some background in web design I figured it would be worthwhile to make a blog about history and travel, giving me something productive to do while I backpacked.
"When I returned home to Vancouver, Canada, I put together Then and Now photo essays for that city and nearby Victoria. Both pages quickly went viral and the response has been overwhelming."
St Andrew's Church still sits proudly on George Street, even with a time-gap of almost 200 years.
"The Edinburgh photos were interesting for different reasons. They show a city that was not nearly as effected by the deindustrialisation of the latter half of the 20th Century," Andrew added.
"Instead the city has remained remarkably static, and few great buildings have been torn down.
"Edinburgh certainly does feel much older in the photos I was able to assemble."
Finally, Edinburgh's trams have been the highlight of criticism and praise in recent times, but this snap captures the city's tramway back in 1917.
He said: "I'm going to try backpacking through most of the major metropolitan areas in the United Kingdom and develop partnerships with various sources of archival photos.
"I wouldn't object to any donations that will allow me to continue living here on my shoestring budget.
"I'm also attempting to set up a system where people can submit photo sets from whatever cities they live in, so that this can rapidly expand into a global network of Then and Now photos."
