Queensgate, Inverness

Queensgate was to originally have been named Raigmore Street. The plans were set out by Alexander Ross in 1884 but the street was not fully developed until 1900. Queensgate is now home to a number of offices and shops as well as private flats and apartments. It is also the site of the main Post Office in Inverness. The original post office building was built in 1888 but was demolished to make way for the more modern building, that can be seen on the right hand side of the street in this photograph, in the 1960s.
