The Camera Obscura show is a fascinating and highly amusing way to see the city and learn about its history. This unique experience has delighted and intrigued people for over 150 years.
It’s 1850s Edinburgh. Cinema won’t be invented for another half century. But Maria Short is already wowing locals with her live, moving pictures of the city.
How it works
A magical experience? Definitely. But the Camera Obscura is powered by nothing but daylight.
