We’ve trawled through our photo archives to dig out some pictures that perfectly capture Edinburgh in the 1990s.
Take a look at these photos of the Capital from back then – including the St James Shopping Centre, the opening of the Gyle, and the Edinburgh derby at Tynecastle.
1. Empire Theatre
Edinburgh’s Empire Theatre was transformed into the Festival Theatre in the 90s, but prior to that it was used as a Mecca bingo hall.

2. St Andrew Square bus station
The bus station in Edinburgh in the 1990s looked a lot different than how it does today, in part thanks to the huge, concrete-clad office development that towered above it.

Children can be seen here watching the old Westburn blocks of flats being torn down at Wester Hailes, Edinburgh. This picture was taken in January, 1993.
