Scottish Marriage Lintel

Even when the weather is bad in Scotland, there is still much to photograph; if you keep your eyes open as you walk down Scottish Streets. In the past it was the custom among handloom weavers in Newburgh, Fife, Scotland, on marrying to have their initials and a heart cut in the lintel of their door. The Stone to be seen at No. 60 High Street, bears the names of Janet Williamson and Thomas Anderson who was a sea captain, as can be seen on the design.
