Title
Cowgate Port
Description
From the roof of a church rises a tall tower with a dome which has a weathervane on top of it. Another larger dome sits further back on the roof. There is smoke rising from the chimneys of houses in front of the kirk, one of which has a tiled roof. People climb the stairs to the entrance doorway of one building. A handrail is attached to the side of the steps. A woman stands beside some tables and containers outside a shop. A man and woman are buying produce from a man wearing a hat. The goods are displayed on a handcart which sits in the middle of the road. Children are looking on. An abandoned cart sits by the pavement.
