Thank you to Robert Dick who replied:
"I've just seen the photo
at the top of this page:
You are bang on with the details of the sign
above the door. My great, great
grandmother, Jessie Whitehead Bennett
(1879-1948), was adopted by bootmaker Thomas Bennett (1847-1907) and his
wife Mary Baxter (1850-1903).
This page on the
RCAHMS web site has some photos that confirm your
findings. Thomas lived at 489 Lawnmarket. You can see the
writing on and above the first floor window.
Many of my ancestors lived
in the Lawnmarket, especially in the James Court area from 1850 up to as
recently as 1993."
