BROOMGATE LANARK ABOUT TEN YEARS AGO

This is a view that I took down the Broomgate Lanark about ten years ago. The pink house was one that the Archaeological Society dug inside before its restoration. The current house was built for the overseer of the Poor House. The Poor House was the crow stepped gable building which stands back from the street. The Poor House dates to the 17th century and was originally Lanark Grammar.
Amongst the things we found in the excavation of the Poor House was a beggar`s badge.
