WhereArtI Monday and a slightly different one this week. This plaque is on an Edinburgh wall, but can you tell me what the top line (currently blurred) reads?
Have a guess below, there are no prizes this week but leader board points are on offer for the first three correct answers.
The sketch is in black ink with a little watercolour wash.
Well done @lemon_squeezy and @0apropos, you both told me the top line is ‘St John’s Pend’. This is a small alleyway from The Royal Mile to St John’s Street in the Canongate area of Edinburgh. A ‘pend’ is Scots for an archway or vaulted passage. The Knights of St John were believed to have had their houses in the area. More about them tomorrow.
