car battery

I have a 1997 Subaru Outback. I am replacing the battery. When I took out the old battery, I did not mark which wire was the positive wire connected to the old battery. I now have the new battery, but do not know which cable goes to the positive battery post.
If I am standing in front of the car, is the positive post on the battery to my left or to my right.

Follow the two cables to the other end. The one which bolts to the side of the engine is the negative. The one which goes to the starter or other insulated terminal is the positive.
