James Court

James Court lies a short distance to the north of the Lawnmarket, close to the top of the Royal Mile.  There are three entries to it passing under the buildings of the Lawnmarket:

-  West Entry

-  Mid Entry

-  East Entry

The original buildings, built around 1725 by James Brownhill (from whom the court takes its name) were destroyed by fire and replaced in 1857.

This derived image is not too realistic.  Some of the colours in the bus have been lost, but I found the reflections in the poster on the right hand side of the passage to be interesting, and 'James Court' name in the pavement shows up well.
