The Morgan Arcade

Completed in 1899, and originally called the New Central Arcade, the Morgan Arcade was built to connect the famous (and now sadly gone) David Morgan Department Store in the Hayes with another of David Morgan’s stores opened on St Mary’s Street.

Seen on St Mary’s Street.

Gothic Dragon On The Scott Monument

My theme this week is the wonderfully gothic Scott Monument in Edinburgh, a memorial to the great writer Sir Walter Scott, who died in 1832.

High up on one of the corners of the Scott Monument is this beautiful gothic-style dragon gargoyle, looking out over the city. I wonder what he is thinking?

I hope you’ve enjoyed my shots of the Scott Monument this week. I have more of them to share with you next week.
