Looking Towards Millburn Road and the Crown, Inverness, 1979

This view looking towards Millburn Road was taken after the demolition of the Lochgorm Inn (to the left of the image) but before the building of the Eastgate Shopping Centre and the Safeway (now Morrisons) Supermarket.

This whole part of Inverness had long been marshy ground, prone to flooding with a stagnant pool known as Loch Gorm. It was not until the mid-18th century that the area was drained and became suitable for building.
